Notes

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.
