[1] From this issue (1923) through to 1935, after ‘Weather’, the title on the inner title page but not the front cover is extended with ‘that will occur in each Month. Numerous Useful Tables’. I have sometimes represented the shorter front cover form, and sometimes the longer inner title page form, in my individual year listings for this period, but typically both apply.

[2] This form is used on the front cover but ‘A Coloured Hieroglyphic’ on the inner title page in this issue. Likewise on the issues from 1931, 1932.
