      Note/s:
      • Tiffin states that 'This is probably a phantom edition. It consists of the first 'Book' of the Heinemann edition setting and was deposited in the Library of Congress in March 1898 presumably to establish copyright. I have not located a copy of the complete book in such an edition.'
