Notes / Commentary: The list of the titles in the series is given without numbers in advertisements. The books themselves contain a number and date, with No. 4 the only one examined by LeBlanc. LeBlanc's listing contained only 55 titles, but No. 58 was added from a digitized copy found in the Internet Archive, and Nos. 55, 61 and 81 were added from WorldCat records. The dates and numbers for Nos. 1-2, 9, 13, 15 and 30 were added from bookseller listings. Numbering for Nos. 5-6, 11, 22, 28, 32, 35-36, 39, 43 and 52 comes from WorldCat. A digitized copy of No. 4 (presumably a different printing than the one LeBlanc examined) provided numbering for the remaining titles between 1-23 (and confirmed numbering from WorldCat within that range).
