Notes / Commentary: Reprinted from the Parlor Car Publishing Company's Old Sleuth's Own. Evidently the plates for the first fifteen numbers were damaged and could not be used. New plates were made and the issues added at the end numbered 132 to 146. Ogilvie's advertisements started at No. 16, though one ad started at No. 10, suggesting that Nos. 1-15 may have been issued for a short time before the plates were damaged. However, no issues numbered 1 through 15 were reported by LeBlanc or other collectors.
