    I have a copy identical to yours except that opposite the copyright
page a slip of paper has been tipped in with the following errata note:

"Francis Hackett's introduction was received too late to include in this
edition.  Any one desiring to exchange this volume for a later edition
containing this introduction should send his name to the publishers."  

    Based on the note and the other identifying features noted in
Toledano, I have assumed this is the first.
