SPECIAL COLLECTIONS: Copy 1: the title page of the 2nd volume has been substituted for the title page of vol. 1. The second digit of the volume number has been erased. Consequently, this set was previously cataloged as though vol. 1 also had the typographical error of "Philadelphla" in the imprint, and as a variant issue because there was not a copyright notice present on the verso of the title. Pub. catalog (32 p.) at end of v. 1. Bound in original boards with cloth backstrip, BAL's binding variant A.
