Sabin 74264; Howes R-522: “Above [1833 edition] constituted the first series, covering the years 1817 to 1819. For second [1845] series see following entry. Together they present the diplomatic maneuvers concerning the conflicting claims to Oregon and the adjustment of a Northwestern boundary line. English editions of both series probably have priority.”.
