Vyse wrote up the version for publication in 1838. The published version is not a transcript of this journal. It’s very unlikely that a copy editor (other than Vyse himself) could have read Vyse’s handwriting.
The only indication of editorial markup is lines scratched through the material, standard practice for (e.g.) copy typists, probably done by Vyse himself, as he worked his way through the journal.
There is no indication that anyone other than Vyse touched this material.
