<p>Roughly a third of this volume (p 35 to the end) consists of poetry by William Palmer eulogizing Anna Maria Carter, so it might be more accurate to list him as a contributor and perhaps even to note poetry as its genre. I'm not sure how to describe the pagination -- in the scan, I see the title page, then an unnumbered first page beginning an "apology", then pages numbered iv-vi for the rest of the apology, another unnumbered page beginning the extracts, and then pages numbered 8 to 53 (with some unnumbered pages when sections shift). (That's in Google Books; ECCO cuts off on p 51, which is mid-sentence.) I assume the scan has removed some blank or "non content" pages at the beginning that would make the first numbered page (iv) accurate.</p>
