This is the stated sixth edition. Prince's guide was first published in 1885 as a thirty-seven-page pamphlet, and over the course of the last fifteen years of the 19th century grew to the form present here, with just under 225 pages, numerous photographic reproductions, and two maps. Fewer than ten copies in OCLC.
