The page size of lithographs from the Beverley Tucker (Senate printer) edition is approximately 23+/- cm (short - horizontal axis) x 28.7~29+ cm (long - vertical axis) [ca. 9 x 11 1/2~1/2 inches]. In the book trade, this is referred to as "4to".

I have not been able to attribute these lithographs to a specific book. I believe that these size lithographs were probably trimmed down slightly either in a rebinding process or to improve appearance.
