[4] Advertising at the rear for transneptunian ephemerides only for the years 1928 and 1929 suggests a date of 1928, which is supported by the original copyright dating shown in the third edition, q.v. below; however, DNB records claim a publication date of 1929

[24] A print-on-demand facsimile-based reprint, issued April 2009, of the original dissertation
