Note: John Leech's illustrations were created as engravings which had to be colored by hand, or through wood cuts. Due to the desire to create an edition that is as faithful to the original as modern typesetting technology will allow, they were not mofidied or enhanced for this edition. Readers should be aware that Leech did not produce his illustrations in a manner that they are accustomed to seeing in later books.
