The title-page cut is from Mr. Muir’s drawing of Erigeron Muirii, a plant discovered by him near Cape Thompson in northwestern Alaska and named for him by the botanist Asa Gray. This cut appeared in Captain Hooper’s Report.
The half-tone of the Corwin which appears on the cover is from a painting by Denny.
