I purchased a wonderful book yesterday at the local Flea. 'Hope's Costumes of the Ancients'. I've done some research but now am a bit confused. The book inside clearly states Second Edition 1809, and it has 200 engravings. My research showed the first printing was in 1809 with 200 engravings. The second was apparently in 1812 with 300 engravings. I don't understand why it says 'Second Edition' but only has 200 engravings. Can anyone please possibly tell me anything about what I have here?
