HILL & SON ESTIMATE BOOK 2  (January 1862 - May 1877). 

 

Notes

 

1. Pagination is in pairs (i.e. openings), except for pp. 15-37 (the two sides of an opening are indicated in the table below as "a" and "b")

 

2. Estimates are numbered 1-1621, although the numbers 1425-1524 are omitted.  The pagination and dates do not suggest that the book is incomplete.  The sequence of estimate numbers 511-610 is repeated (from p. 105a).  Numbers that have been supplied here editorially are given in square brackets.

 

3.  Job numbers were added after the initial entries had been made, though not in all instances.  These are shown in square brackets where they have been added here editorially.
