This work, one of several in the period related to the Boston Water supply and the search for it, is often mis-catalogued as complete with a lesser page count because of the way it was printed. In addition, although OCLC/Worldcat notes a folding map and folding chart, we've never seen a copy with a folding chart in it. There ARE five full page charts/illustrations integral to the pagination, and one folding map in addition. Harvard's digitized copy (the Haiti trust version is incorrectly truncated) contains no folding chart.
