First US edition, first printing. McKay were prepared to publish more black and white illustrations than Warne, resulting in an additional 12 drawings appearing in the US edition, as well as 13 head and tails for the chapters. The colour plates were the same for both editions. The two editions were likely published simultaneously, though the exact publication date of the US edition is unknown.

Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles and pictorial pig motif to front board in maroon and gilt, titles to spine in maroon, pictorial endpapers. With the dust jacket. Housed in a blue cloth solander box. Frontispiece, 5 colour illustrations, and 34 full-page black and white illustrations by the author. A fine copy.

Bibliography: Linder, p. 432; Quinby 30a.
