During the 1940s Dryad periodically bound together batches of their leaflets as the book titled above.
Although they tried to keep them as similar as possible, substitutions were frequently used and copies of the book could range anywhere between 30-45 leaflets in size.
My personal copy containes 45 leaflets - although one (No. 125) was a duplicate (technically an edited repeat of leaflets No. 13 and No. 51).

Bound within my copy I found the following numbers (other copies of this book may vary)
