The edition will consist of five volumes in which is compressed a mass of information more than three times as much as was contained in the reports of the Censuses of 1861 for the same four Provinces ... Each volume will contain remarks referring to the tabular matter therein published, and each will be furnished with indexes and explanations necessary to facilitate reference thereto"--Introd., v. 1.
