This data was kindly contributed by Clive Weston.  It consists of all the printing references for the manuals and price lists of the period, as far as is known.  The printing reference on Meccano literature can usually be found on the back cover, near the bottom of the page, and looks like this: 13/459/35.  The first figure is the printer's reference.  The middle figures give the month and year, in this example April 1959.  The last figure is the print run in thousands.

These tables should be regarded as incomplete, and contributions are invited if you have any manuals, etc. that are not shown in these lists.  Please search through your manuals and literature to see if you have any that are not listed.  If so, please send the information to Clive Weston.
