Hall, Basil:
Voyage to Corea, and the Island of Loo-Choo, A New Edition With Plates, London, 1820, John Murray, 18mo (4 x 6 3/4 in - 10.2 x 17 cm), 1 hand colored engraved plate (frontispiece), 3 black and white engraved plates and one engraved fold out map at the rear, 259 pp.

The title page calls the book a "New Edition" and the preface refers to it as a second edition. This is a trade edition with signficantly reduced content and illustrations. It lackes the appendix found in the first edition. The appendix contained charts, and geological/ hydrographical/ scientific data, an abstract of the Lyra's voyage and a vocabulary of the Loo-Choo language by H.J. Clifford. The first edition contained 8 hand colored engraved plates and one black and white engraved plate. The preface states: "The present edition is confined to the narrative alone, to the exclusion of all technical and other details, not calculated to interest the general public."
