Originally published in 1841, this novel was reprinted in Clarke, Beeton, & Co.'s Run and Read Library in 1854; the series was taken over by Simpkin, Marshall, and Co. in 1856 and this reprint dates from a few years after that (according to the TCD library record), retaining the earlier publisher's imprint on the engraved title-page.
