Notes

First illustrated edition, large paper issue, one of 250 copies released in England; a further 25 copies were released in the US. Thomson's "light touch and feeling for period manners provide a charming and accessible gloss to the author's work" (ODNB). This was the first edition to feature illustrations accompanying the text; Bentley's 1833 edition and subsequent printings had featured only a frontispiece. Loosely laid in is the publisher's publicity slip for the sale of Thomson's original drawings for this edition at the Fine Art Society.
