The pagination is the same except that there is an extra, unpaginated, pink leaf of publisher's advertisements inserted between pages vi and vii, before the preface. The volume is bound in green cloth, with a different series title, "All about it books', on the spine. An advertisement for Dewhurst's Sewing Cotton on page xiii at the back of the book, which cites a medal won in 1885, indicates that the OPo(F) copy was published after the LoEN edition.
