The 1899, 1909 and 1913 Newton catalogues present this as a single title, but listing the eight component sets (which are mentioned separately in the 1888 Indispensable Handbook) under their own titles and with slide numbers starting from 1 for each set.

Assuming that the eight sets were originally available separately, it is not known at what point they were gathered under the single covering title.

The 105 individual slide titles will be listed here under the separate component sets.
