Compiled by Sharon L. Brevoort, 2003

There are a considerable number of differences between the first and second editions of Old Ann Arbor Town. Some photographs included in one are not included in the other, and some photographs are of better quality or larger size in one than in the other. This comparison list of page numbers is offered to make it easy to find both and compare them. Copies of the first edition can be found at the Ann Arbor District Library (call number AADL R977.435 An), the Chelsea District Library (R977.435 Pro), the Northfield Public Library (977.4 Pro), the Saline District Library (R977.435 Old), and the Ypsilanti District Library (RCM 977.4 Pro).
