The Boy's Own Book (Revised Edition), 1880
A new edition of 'The Boy's Own Book', 'thoroughly revised and considerably enlarged', was published in London by Crosby, Lockwood and Co in 1880. A full copy can be viewed online at https://ufdc.ufl.edu/UF00048435/00001/1j

This edition contains Troublewit, two versions of the Cherries Puzzle, the Cherry Cheat and the Card Puzzle, and a version of the Buddha Papers, all of which are in the first edition.

I cannot find the Paper Furnace effect in this revised edition, and so presume it has been omitted.

The revised edition also contains the Fold and One Cut Latin Cross, which was not in the original edition.
