TAAS pp. 459_477. Two editions of these pages of the Acts and Laws (1759 and additions) were issued, one without a title and the other as cited above. They also differ "in the captions on pages 459, 464, in the Royal arms on pages 459, 464, and in the arrangement of lines; and in one edition the W in 'Whereas,' the first word of the Act beginning on page 459, is a plain four-line letter, while in the other edition it is an ornamental initial letter.” There are also variations in paging. In some copies pages 460, 461, and 462 are correctly given, in others they are 160, 161, 162, or 160, 161, 164; also pages 464-479 are in some correctly numbered, in others, they are misnumbered 469 to 477, and in others pages 470, 473, 474 appear as 670, 463, 674.
