    • The publication was manufactured by binding the three original collections with the original title pages, copyright pages, and page numbering. See the Publication Comments for details of the pagination.
    • The publication date is not stated. reports "June 1985" but that can't be right as the third collection in this omnibus was published in 1991. Locus1 does not have a record for Scary Stories Treasury. This blog post from September 22, 2010 reports HarperCollins, 1995, $9.95, and links to Amazon for ISBN 0-06-026341-5. 1995 is reasonable and so that date was used.
    • The printing number is not stated.
    • The page count was computed by adding up the pages for each collection in the omnibus. See the Publication Comments for more details. Some sources list the publication as 115 pages as that's the last numbered page.
    • The price is not stated. The copy verified did not have a dust jacket. It's not clear if there was a dust jacket initially as the publication has a front cover, spine, and back cover.
    • The cover artist is not credited in the publication. Stephen Gammell is credited in this publication record as the cover drawing is the same as the Stephen Gammell drawing on page 30 of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.
