This copy has the plates printed in colours and enhanced by hand-colouring. The Cosaques de Don plate called for is not present as usual (see Lipperheide), but is replaced with the Montagne de glace surl'Irtiche à Tobolsk plate of an artifical snow slope. It also includes the often suppressed Le bain russe.
