|Physical Description:||Title and author in black, top quarter of cover. Rest of cover is devoted to the illustration. Title on spine in black with series name and number. Undated.|
|Notes / Commentary:||The original LeBlanc listing was missing numbers 1-30, 32-35, 37-41, 43-67, 69-132, 137-141, 143-187, 189-213, 215-237, 239-268, 270-278 and 280-287. #1 and #6 were added from WorldCat (#6 also confirmed by a bookseller's image); information on #2 was provided by Cary Sternick. #10 was documented in Sherlock Holmes Among the Pirates by Donald A. Redmond (Greenwood Press, 1990). It appears from the sampling of known issues that titles were recycled within the series, so it is unclear how many distinct titles were included.|
