The first US illustrated edition was published by Osgood in 1873. In 1876 Osgood sold the plates which were bought by Porter and Coates. Even though the book still bears a copyright date of 1873, the actual printing was about 1876. The only difference we note is that the list of illustrations from the first edition was omitted from this one, adn, indeed, there are fewer illustrations.
