A second edition, somewhat expanded, appeared in 1897. First printing. Tall octavo (23cm). Original maroon cloth boards; xxiv,558pp2pp publisher's catalog inserted before half-title. Some uneven sun-fading to board edges, with traces of wear to spine ends and board corners; few spots of foxing to prelims, but still a tight, straight Very Good or better copy, with the text mostly unopened.
