    General comments: The differing publisher's addresses distinguish these two editions. Despite searches through various directories I have not pinpointed when the publisher worked at each address nor have I determined which edition precedes the other. EngCat is unhelpful. It records one edition in February 1909, pages 288 [{{sic}}], price 1s, and another edition in April 1909, pages 280, price 1s 6d.
