      General comments: NUCat records copies dated 1906 at DNLM, PPC and NN, and copies dated 1914 at ICJ, OrU, OClW, OCl, OKentU, NIC and NN; in neither entry, however, does NUCat differentiate between the various issues of those two years. Likewise, NoHMU reports an edition in its holdings dated 1914 but does not specify how many thousand is printed on the title-page.
