Perhaps Dr. Alexander Anderson’s wood-cuts as illustrations, he worked with the firm while they were located on Pearl Street. Text includes arithmetic tables, Federal and British money information, weights and measures, time and motion, and “Tables of Money, Weights, and Measures Mentioned in the Bible”. An interesting little chapbook.
