In this instance, the full page plates are all black and white, but a series of 14 very charming colored vignettes, printed on tissues and mounted onto the book sheets, mainly as chapter headings, is too remarkable not to be registered. These vignettes are all glimpses of portions of the residences or grounds. We have counted eleven wood engravings colored, but not on mounted tissue in this edition not published by Putnam
