First number styled 'Second Edition' on contents leaf, but contents leaf for July in Volume IV misprinted June, which, according to Abbey, is an indication of being bound from the original parts.

This set is lacking 66 plates in the parts that are present plus a further 41 for those that are not.

A collation against Abbey is available upon request.

(Martin Hardie) From the third number onward it was issued under the general editorship and management of Frederick Schoberl [1775-1853]. The text included a vast array of information intended for general public consumption, politics, war news, simplified technology, art and book reviews, social events, reports on public health, market prices, bankruptcies, fashions. Included are articles and plates relating to Canada, i.e. accounts of Montreal, Halifax, Fredericton, and Quebec, a view of Fort George in Upper Canada from Old Fort Niagara by E.W.
