    How to determine the printing of Diogenes books

    Diogenes uses a rather cryptic number line consisting of four parts separated by a slash. Example:
    40/15/8/1
    So far the following meanings of the four parts have been deduced (from left to right):
    1. unkown (but definitely not the week number because a value of "100" has been seen in book)
    2. Last two digits of the year
    3. unknown
    4. Printing
    The example above therefore is the first printing from 2015 (the example is from a book that was published in September 2015).
