The book was issued just before the new Copyright Act came into effect, and Munro, Neely, Lupon, Ogilvie, McNally and Weeks all issued unauthorized editions at the end of 1893 or shortly thereafter. No American edition has clear priority. George M. Hill aquired the sheets of the E.A. Weeks Company in 1898-99.
