The Household Edition illustration for the ornamental title-page does not match the style of Edward G. Dalziel, nor or the characters in the montage presented by Samuel Pickwick (centre) from the stories reprinted from Household Words and All the Year Round. Nor, indeed, is such a page typical of the printings of the Household Edition in the 1870s.
