[1] DNB gives 1951. However, this copy is bound in covers that feature a list of the first 56 titles in the series, suggesting a somewhat later printing or at least binding

[2] Swiss library records give 1949 for the original three-brochure edtiion, of whith this is an undated combined reprint, quite possibly from as late as the 1970s or 1980s in view of the fresh condition

[3] Not found in German library records. Estimated 1947-8 in its original printing. It must logically have predated the Sonderdruck series that arose from it, the earliest example of which is from 1948

[4] The total price quoted was just DM 30

[5] The follow-up publications to the 1. Brief listed above

[6] Not found in German library records. From contextual evidence, such as the earliest issues of “Der Auskunftsbogen” being laid into them, they can be presumed to date from approx. 1947-9

[7] The pagination appears to presume that the contents of the 1. Brief had been spread over A4-sized sheets like these instead of the A5 pages that were actually used, and thus its allocated page count has been retrospectively halved

[8] An index to the above

[9] Presumed 1948-9

[10] DNB gives 1948. This copy includes advertisements for slightly later issues in the series and must have been bound up in the early-mid 1950s

[11] DNB gives 1952

[12] It is identical to the original one issued with Sonderdruck Nr. 11, q. v. immediately below

[13] DNB gives 1951

[14] DNB gives 1952, but this copy has advertising up to Nr. 46 on the inside of the rear cover, suggesting a later printing or at least binding

[15] DNB records give 1948

[16] DNB gives 1951. The advertising bound in with this copy runs to Sonderdruck 26, while stating that Sonderdruck 27 is in press, which dates this copy in all probability to 1953

[17] The apparently blank central section has been cut out of this copy

[18] A previous owner’s pencilled dating indicates 1952, but DNB gives 1953

[19] DNB gives 1951

[20] Billed as being a series edited by Donald Mack, who is described as an ‘experienced US trader and renowned investment book expert’

[21] The title page and dj front cover also bear insignia of Financial Times (newspaper) with ‘Prentice Hall’ printed on them.

[22] The date of the original edition is given as 1946.

[23] A facsimile reprint of the original published by the author, Carlmel, California, itself undated but  shown from library records to have been published in 1940

[24] A  facsimile reprint, issued early-mid 2000s, of the original published by an unspecified publisher, 1943. Worldcat records fail to identify the original publisher

[25] Presumed to date from the 1950s. German and Swiss library records estimate either 1950 or 1951, but the DNB does not have it. Appears a misleadingly retitled facsimile reprint of the 1927 book by the author shown below
