[These two options have been gently updated layout to conform with modern printing methods, with easier to read text compared to the facsimile and similar very minor adjustments.]
Note: THIS EDITION IS A FACSIMILE. That means it is EXACTLY as was originally published. For that reason, it has the magic of the original, but also contains all the blemishes and defects which were common to books printed almost 200 years ago. Reader beware. Further, the original illustrator, John Leech, did not use a computer or graphic editing to create his illustrations. llustrations at the time were created as engravings which had to be colored by hand, or through wood cuts. Readers beware. They were not mofidied or enhanced for this edition. It is a FACSIMILE!
