Basil Hall's Account
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."
