The print run is said to be 1095 copies thus, with a further 125 fully bound in leather and signed by the author.

Modern rebinding of full brown calf, gilt rules, spine titles and raised bands; all edges gilt (probably from the original binding). After rebinding the volume had been given a plastic covering, which has left light tape stains on the new endpapers. The fore-margin of the final leaf has been professionally repaired, damp stains at the head of the frontis leaf (well away from the photograph). There are 4pp of manuscript bound in before the original front free endpaper (German hymns, translated). ***The half-title is inscribed 'Isabella Taylor, from her dear sister M.A. Harris' - the dedication is by M.A.H. - and the original endpaper has two pencilled inscriptions: 'Isabella Tylor, Shepley House, Carshalton, Surrey, 1869' and 'Left by her to her eldest daughter Juliet Morse[?], 14 Airlie Gardens, Campden Hill, Kensington 1905'.
