Notes / Commentary:

Beginning with No. 98 or so, date, schedule of appearance second-class notice, and subscription price were omitted. The individual price and numbering continued to the end however. LeBlanc believed that the library ended with No. 165 some time in 1905; a listing for no. 166 in WorldCat suggests that it lasted at least one issue longer.

The original LeBlanc listing was missing Nos. 155, 158-164, and 166+; thanks to Curtis Paul for providing information about No. 155 and Cary Sternick for providing details on No. 158. Information on No. 166 comes from WorldCat. No. 179 is listed from a copy digitized by Villanova University.
