¶First published in 1885. A variant binding with brown and gold end papers different from that recorded by Wolff 5529. 3 variants are recorded; one, as in Sadleir 1962, in pinkish ochre cloth, one in white buckram, and one in maroon marocco-grained cloth. 'Is it not remarkable' Wolff writes, 'that of an edition of 1,000 copies, I should have found three that differ from each other and from Sadleir's?'
