Book reference needs expansion

Two Screven sisters can be removed from the unsourced United States category if someone with more patience than I have can write a book resource that meets wikitree standards.
Their brother is sourced because of my additions but also needs the expansion for accuracy.  The book is listed as a source but is only one line marked [1].  I do not intend to do it myself.

Joseph Gaston Braille Bullock, MD, A History and Genealogy of the Habersham Family, The R. L. Bryan Co., Columbia, SC, 1901, pp. 168-175.

Note ... I prefer to cite the whole section for this family, rather than just the page. A link to an electronic version of the book is convenient, but optional. However, a simple link to the book is not an adequate reference.

Thank you to all for the help.  Many hands make light work!!

Would this link to the page on her in the book not be sufficient?

by Jan Terink G2G6 Pilot (250k points)
I don't understand enough about that reference to say, hence the question and help needed from someone who does.
The reference should include the title of the book, the author, publisher, publication date, and page number.  A link to the image of the page is very helpful, too.   Since this book doesn't seem to list sources for the information, however, I added the 1900 census showing Mary with her parents and siblings to the profile.
Jan, the link alone would not be sufficient because it could become broken if the website was changed or removed, and then there would be no way of ever knowing what the citation referred to.

I will create a Free space page* for the book and add it to the Family Genealogies list that Rick Pierpont oversees.

*Updated to add: I created a free space page for this book and included links to several errata pages.
