The Rackham-illustrated edition of the Ingoldsby Legends was first published in 1898, but was later revised and largely redrawn from in 1907 so that "greater prominence could be given to the illustrations by better and larger reproductions, including a greater number of illustrations in colour" (Rackham's Prefatory Note). Latimore & Haskell pp. 30-31; Riall p. 83.
