General note

NOTE: All drawings are by Frank Vizetelly unless stated otherwise. Most drawings have pencilled annotations by Vizetelly on verso (occasionally also on recto) and sometimes include changes to the original text made by his editors. Titles of drawing were taken from the Vizetelly text exactly as annotated on verso. Quotation marks included in titles are Vizetelly's. Often the published titles, as well as the drawings, vary from the originial.
