The 304 page outline and advance sheets for the 1884 Report on Irrigation was submitted to the California Legislature as an exhibit of the extent and character of the report that was in the process of preparation and publication. The first 32 pages contain the Table of Contents or Outline of Matter, for each chapter of the entire work. The subsequent 272 pages contained the text of about three-fifths of the First Book.
