It states that the author had been informed of new orders as to Grants of Land & the Rules at Present in Force for Crown Lands in NSW & VDL & they are included. Original light brown papered boards and green calico spine. Ferguson cites only the M.L. & N.L. copies, and neither of these with the appendix.
