No. 39 was added from a copy digitized by Google Books. No. 41 was added from a copy digitized by the Internet Archive. No. 75 was added from a bookseller's listing (which included a photo of the title page, confirming the date and "Extra" status).

Several untitled entries (Adventures of a Bashful Irishman, At War With Herself, A Crimson Stain, A Double Love, Lost and Found, Married in Haste, A Midnight Marriage, Old Si's Humorous Sketches, Perdita, Woman Against Woman and A Woman's Vengeance) were added from an advertisement in The American Bookseller, v.
