Notes / Commentary: The original LeBlanc listing was missing numbers 31-38, 82-84, 86, 88, 91-92, 94-100, 102-105, 108, 111, 115, 124, 126, 128-132 and 134+. Numbers 84, 96, 97, 103 and 132 are added from WorldCat records. The LeBlanc listing identified number 106 as "The City Chest of New Amsterdam," but other evidence, including a WorldCat record, suggests that this should be "The City of Dreadful Night and other stories." Two different titles for number 102 were added based on a copy in Villanova University's collection ("White Dandy") and WorldCat ("The New Cosmogeny"); perhaps one of these titles was a replacement for the other. Numbers 86, 88, 91, 92, 94 and 95 were added based on advertising in The Bookseller and Newsman, January 1897, page 37. Number 99 is added from advertising in The Bookseller and Newsman, November 1897, page 13. Numbers 129, 130 and 134 are added from H. W. Wilson's "The United States Catalog Supplement, Books Published 1902-1905."
