[1] This particular volume appears to be an early issue as marked by the rounded corners to the boards and all paper within, and the lack of Roman numeral identifier to the spine, a later introduction alongside the loss of the rounded corners on later issues. But it is still not clear exactly when it was bound up

[2] Of the old-issue rounded-cornered stock with no Roman numeral identifier to the spine. In this case, exceptionally, the dating of the signature definitely shows that this was not a later reprint although as with all reprints, the individual sections are undated except by copyright

[3] No overall title page within; title taken from front board and spine

[4]The undated ones appear later, being on fresher paper, than the dated ones; guessed 1970s.

[5] No overall title page within; title taken from front board and spine

[6] Unlike on most issues bearing more than one date, the second one is here given as an additional copyright date rather than as a date of reprinting, so the actual printing date could be thus or slightly later

[7] Of the early-issue stock with rounded corners and no Roman numeral identifier to the spine

[8] A reset reprint of the above
