G. Dalziel but all printed tissue guards state Marcus Stone; all illustrations present with printed tissue guards intact except one for page 82, which is not present and it does not appear that it was manually removed (believe to be a manufacturing flaw).  One of the first thousand impressions from a new set of plates, with publisher’s facsimile signature.
