Remarks:

This issue is made from original unbound sheets left over from the second issue originally printed in 1937 and is missing the pocket with The Comment on The Book of the Law and the photolithographic facsimile reproduction of the original manuscript of The Book of the Law.

Not all copies have the color plates of the Stele.3

Approximately 900 copies of unbound sheets from the 1937 printing were passed to Samuel Weiser by Karl Germer where they were trimmed from their original size, bound and distributed.5

The foot of the title-page may be rubber stamped WEHMAN BROS. | PUBLISHERS | 712 BROADWAY, N. Y. 3’.
A variation of this rubber stamp has been reported as ‘WEHMAN BROS. | PUBLISHER | 158 MAIN STREET | HACKENSACK, N.J.’7
Although this issue does not have the pocket at the rear of the volume that held a folder containing single-sided manuscript copies of the Book of the Law, some copies of this issue were sold with the manuscript copies in the original folder placed in a specially printed buff-colored envelope.1, 6

Some copies had a cancel imprint label pasted on the title page that read "Occult Research Press, 117 Fourth Avenue, New York, New York" which, at the time, was the name of Samuel Weiser’s publishing business.5
