Both covers for each issue are bound in. The paper is beige coloured, and printed in black. There is a star on each corner, then five fillets on the borders. Between the second and third fillets, a dentelle border is printed. Three medallions are at the head, each with a figure. They are; "Laputian"; "Yahoo, Houyhnhnm"; "Struldbrug". The title "/ Cassell's/ Ilustrated / Gulliver's/ Travels/" is printed at the centre. The capital "G" is highly ornamented. A hand and a small figure within it are below the title. There is a medallion at the tail on the left and on the right. Each shows a sea monster [the Leighton "dolphin"]. The design on the upper cover for each part is signed "Luke Limner F.S.A." and "H. Leighton Sc." between the fillets at the tail. The imprint: "/ London/ Cassell Petter & Galpin/ La Belle Sauvage Road./ E.C./" is printed between medallions on the centre tail. Stylistically, this design is close to Leighton's for that of "Voices of the year or poet's calendar …’ at BL 11651.h.9. Text copyright Edmund M B King.
