Perhaps I just am not familiar enough with these collections yet, but something does not seem right about this one. Discrepancies I've noticed include advertisements dated *years* after this was to have been published.
Right on page 1, after the green cover, at the top it's (presumably) "curated" 1836 and includes people I know for a fact were born after that date (Thomas Shaw of "Mr. & Mrs. T. M. E. Shaw, Shawmont Avenue" was born 1838). This same page also has a Harvard College Library Memorial emblem with the notation "Class of 1914," so I think this might warrant a look from Google Books Quality Control (j/k) or if this is correct somehow, a notation explaining would be great.
