Both volumes are indexed and include minutes of meetings, regulations, attendance records, and other information.

Octavo volume three consists of sketches of Boston booksellers for the period 1650 to 1860 compiled by Melvin Lord (1791-1876). The volume also contains a brief history of bookselling in Boston and an index to the sketches.
