Notes / Commentary:

LeBlanc's original listing for this title includes a lengthy essay on the publication, which includes excerpts from stories and announcements. The essay points out that much of the content of this paper was reprinted from English publications, and some of that content contained extremely graphic violence in spite of the publisher's claims of unobjectionable content. It also notes that many extant copies of the paper are in bound volumes which omit the original colored covers.

Some data in LeBlanc's listing suggests that the 1873 "Holiday Number" (a second December issue) may exist independently of the 58 numbered issues, but other data suggests that it is issue no. 4. This listing currently assumes that no. 4 and the "Holiday Number" are one and the same, but this assumption should be checked against physical copies of the issues.
