London: Methuen & Co., 36 Essex Street W.C., (1904). Second Edition. Octavo, original red cloth lettered in gilt on spine, front panel lettered in black. 383 pp + 40 pp publisher's catalogue dated March, 1907 bound in at rear. Frontispiece with tissue guard plus seven additional full-page plates reproducing artwork by Smith. Small marks to cloth, spine panel very slightly tanned, a very good, clean, attractive copy. Note: This "Second Edition" undoubtable utilises leftover sheets of the First Edition - the title page is a cancel, i.e., it is tipped-in on a stub. Technically this should be referred to as a second issue, rather than a second edition, as it is not a reprint. Item #312428
