Notes: The text contents of this volume were used as inserted 1830 pages into the 2007 Letterpress Edition 1830 Replica. In general 2 pages per letterpress copy were inserted to commission 147 volumes with these 1830 pages. These pages were already separated from the volume, the copy was in poor condition and the title page was missing. The decision was made to separate the pages and commission them into the Letterpress Replica printings. Generally if 2 pages are in a Letterpress Replica, they came from this volume.
