BB" There are notes and annotations on a vast majority of pages, including some historical price information, e.g., on page 456 under Session Laws, Public Laws of the State (1798) Printed by Carter and Wilkinson. Providence, 1798, pencil marginalia record 6 price points for that edition: "5 - M '13 / 4.50 - M '04 / 6 - H '17 / 3 - H '19 / 12 - AJH '29 / 8 - Stat '35" Opposite page 31 "Provisional laws and joint resolutions... Jefferson Territory... Omaha, 1860... [First book printed in Colorado] -- Hudson Book Co. Aug 1926 $3000 / John Vanmale Sept. 1931 $2000."
