Additional Details

Sabin (5899) states that only 250 were printed, of which 50 were large-paper copies. As Sabin was the publisher of the book, we will trust his authority. It was printed by Joel Munsell, as shown by his JM-monogrammed "Aldi Discipulus Albanus" insignia on the title page, and comes from the estate of its editor Franklin B. Hough. Howes B532.
