Compare this with the Amies Standard Art Edition I have listed under 1880?. See my comments there. This edition changes publishers (but not city) from Amies to Pictorial and the cover stock from olive to dark blue. It also adds printer's numbers at the bottom of e.g., xiii and xlv. It avoids the problem that the Amies edition had with 665. The back cover of this book is identical with the front, except that it has no gold or silver inlay. The book is in the running for two prizes in my collection: the best cover and the greatest weight!
