Title: Canadian Bank Notes - 9th ed.

20-18 should read $20 1898 but it seem like the row for 20-12 was copied instead.

You are quite right - thanks for reporting it.
Lots of copy and paste shortcuts were taken when the book had to be essentially rebuilt in newer software, and some shortcuts of course weren't correct.
A great many were caught during proofing but several escaped detection.
Probably the most serious are:
Barclays Bank 1929 issue, page 8, grade headings should be VG to UNC, not G to AU
Bank of Western Canada, page 536, ditto.

220-22-04S $50 1925 Specimen should be 220-22-06S (or -08S) to concord with the numbering of the issued notes.  The example I have handled has the typed Nanton signature so it would be 06S.

Issue of 1933

Signatures:

left
engr. A. E. Phipps

right
typed F. A. Rolph

However, I believe both signatures are typed and not engraved.  At least the examples I could find had clearly different positions of the signatures from one note to the other.
