Local Notes
Copy in McGill Library's Rare Books and Special Collections: 1 in a collection of 57 title pages and frontispieces from 1820 to 1828 that represent a better technique than some earlier examples as the strong colours are not applied as carelessly as some of the earlier and cheaper booklets. Unnumbered; accession number: 359087.
