    The preface is dated 15 November 1875. The publisher's advertisements are dated February 1876.
    The LB copy lacks the half-title. The title-page is missing from the LCF copy.
    The NUCat entry for the 1876 edition at MCR, which describes the library's copy as having 54 pages, is incorrect. A librarian confirms that the pagination matches the LoEN copy described here.
