    • The untitled introduction and the interspersed text has been cataloged in the single volume edition as "Biographical Commentary".
    • A direct comparison between the October 1973 reprint of the trade edition, and the first printing [this record] of the volume 1 paperback from Fawcett indicates that the text at the bottom of 299 and the first 2 lines on page 300 appear on pages 266 and 267 of the trade edition. The bottom 5 paragraphs on page 300 are new material intended to tie the two paperback volumes together.
