Fortunately, a reprint made for the newspaper’s 150th anniversary, tends to be more affordable, and over at the IanVisits blog they recently acquired a copy – which has been annotated with additional explanatory text. Its really nice that they used our free ImageCutter software to place a high res/zoomable version online – its great.

If you have 5 minutes to spare then we really recommend heading over to IanVisits to take a look and zoom around.
