Notes / Commentary: The original LeBlanc listing is missing numbers 50-83, 85-116, and 118+. No. 145 was added in a handwritten note by Lydia Schurman. Dates for the first four issues come from The American Bookseller, v. XXIII, no. 10, page 252; this article also includes additional dates, but these seem to diverge from the sequence listed by LeBlanc and may indicate an initial plan that the publishers later altered. Nos. 50, 59, 62, 67-69, 72-73, 90, 92, 94-95, 97, 100, 102-103, 109-110, 124, 129, 131, 138, 143, 147, 152 and 163 were added based on WorldCat records. Nos. 51-57 were added based on a listing on page 93 of Index to the Books of 1890 by Author, Title, and Subject, as Recorded in the Publishers' Weekly. Nos. 58, 60-61, 63-66, 70-71, 74, 76-83, 85-89 and 91 were added based on an advertisement in Publishers' Weekly no. 1044 (January 30, 1892). No. 75 was added based on a bookseller's catalog entry (with photo). Nos. 93, 96, 98-99, 101, 104-108 and 111-114 were added based on an advertisement in Publishers' Weekly no. 1061 (May 28, 1892); this ad is unnumbered, but the order aligns with known numbers. Nos. 115-116, 118-121, 123, 125-128 and 130 were added based on a list on page 99 of Index to the Books of 1892 by Author, Title, and Subject, as Recorded in the Publishers' Weekly. No. 122 was added based on the digitized HathiTrust copy. Nos. 132-137, 139-142, 156-158, 162 and 166 were added based on a listing in The American Catalogue of Books Recorded July 1, 1890 to June 30, 1895. No. 144 was added based on a digitized Internet Archive copy. No. 146 was added based on a review in the March, 1894 The Literary News. Nos. 149 and 151 were added based on listings in the September, 1894 The Literary News. Nos. 150, 153-155 and 159-160 were added based on listings in The Publisher's Weekly no. 1200 (January 26, 1895).
