This volume has an added title page, shown here, stating the publisher as James Miller. The rolled sheet of tissue paper separating the two engravings has been drawn on, presumably by its former owner, Henry Ficken, who was given this book by his cousin in 1877. Ficken has used the tissue as an overlay to comically alter some of the expressions of the children pictured on the right.
