Cary Sternick owns a copy of no. 1 which differs from LeBlanc's description, featuring a full-color pictorial cover showing a woman reading a book above an inset landscape scene.

The LeBlanc listing was based in part on list from The Book and News Dealer for August 1-15, 1893 and contained erroneous entries for #10/#11 and had missing/incomplete entries for #35/#36; these have been corrected based on advertising found in the back of The Bookseller and Newsman, volume 8.
