The following six rubrics are unique to Appendices I & II:
text at beginning of worklist or first column of works, generally consisting of composer’s name and title/opus number of first piece; prices are not cited
as above, except the text relates to work at end of list or last column
detailed contents on line-by-line basis of those STPs which are described in full
DF ‘Distinguishing Feature’
distinctive features of earliest known version of STP or advt, as well as the most significant modifications in subsequent versions; details of all DFs are provided for those STPs which are described in full
date of publication or range of possible dates when an STP or advt was in commercial use
code of each edition/impression containing a given STP/advt
Three other rubrics used throughout the main body of the catalogue have a different meaning within Appendices I & II (cf. the identical fields described under Descriptive method in ‘Explaining the Annotated Catalogue’):
summary of contents of STP/advt, including those features necessary to identify the version thereof; prices are not cited unless they serve as DF(s) facilitating identification
title at top of advt
refers not only to tiny imprints at the very bottom of the page, but also to the body of text located below lists/columns of works, comprising name and address of publisher, printer’s imprint and registration number
One other rubric – Comments – is used as
in the main body
of the catalogue except that relevant dates
are separately indicated (see ‘Date’ above).
All advertisements described in Appendix II were printed in upright (as opposed to oblong) format, except where indicated.
 Text under the first two rubrics is often accompanied by information in square brackets; extracted from the surrounding material, this additional information provides a useful means of deciphering the dense presentational style typical of advertisements.
