New edition: 116 pages, grey paper covered boards with red title label gilt on the spine, a very good copy.

Text in double columns: Only 6 copies listed in SABIB vol 3. page 742

From the preface signed by Pringle: The author has now withdrawn the section of verse altogether from this volume, partly from the conviction that the prose narrative forms without it a whole sufficiently complete and partly with the view of reproducing the poetical sketches at some future period, in separate shape, and with such additions as he hopes may render the collection less unworthy of public favour.
