[1] From the 1877 issue onwards, the year identifier appears before the title only on the inner title page, and disappears from the header of the front cover, but is retained in that position right through to the 1946 issue, and shown here consistently up to the 1934 issue, after which date the cover page diverges in form so significantly that it is shown separately for each issue held from 1936 onwards

[2] Because the front cover is lacking and the inner title page, as usual, carries the fuller title ‘Raphael’s Prophetic Almanac’, the front cover title form is here inferred and assumed to match those of the years around this issue. Likewise in the 1897 issue below.
