Half-title: Memoirs of the Siege of Quebec.
National Union Catalog pre-1956 imprints notes in its entry for an earlier ed. of the ms. (London, 1848), that the ms. is signed "P.M." and was probably written by Patrick Mackellar, engineer-in-chief of the expedition against Quebec. G.G. Lewis attributes the work to Major James Moncrieff, but he was not commissioned until 1762 (DNB XXV 130). Cf. NUC pre-1956 imprints, v. 544, p. 398. DCB IV 501 also attributes authorship to Mackellar.
