Note *1 - This print code seen without the initial '2'.
Note *2 - Two versions of of this manual have been seen - One (small font print code) with pages 1, 2, 40, 41, IRC & Rear Cover like the 2/30 manual and another (larger font print code) with these pages of a slightly later version.
Note *3 - This manual has been seen in two versions. One with 140 pages (inc covers) and the other with 132 pages (inc covers) which omits all the non essential pages such as hornby train advert pages etc.
Note *4 - These manuals have also been seen with plain red stickers stuck over the manual price and edition name, so that they can be used elsewhere. It is thought that they were used in 1935 along with the 1935 4-7 manual for inclusion in outfits.
Note *5 - This manual also seen with an overprint dated March on page 138 (Meccano & Hornby Price List), saying to refer to revised price list.

Note *1 - Also seen with a red sticker over the price and the edition name blacked out for use in other countries.
Note *2 - Note the misprint in this print code. It is assumed that it should be 2/731/.750 (M).
Note *3 - The 1933 5-7 manuals had an unusual print code not seen anywhere else. What the 'W.P.' means is currently not known.
Note *4 - It is thought that unused 1930 00-3 Australian and Canadian manuals (with the price and country covered over) were used in 1935 along with the 1935 4-7 manual for inclusion in outfits. A late era outfit 5 has been seen that colaborates this.
Note 5 - From 1931-34 the largest manual was a 5-7 Manual. In 1935 this was changed back to a 4-7 Manual.

Note 1 - Hardback bound combined manuals were supplied with the No.7 outfit (and possibly also the No.6). They were also available for separate sale.
Note 2 - The manuals were trimmed when they were bound. This sometimes resulted in the print code being removed. Where this has happened in the manuals examined, this is noted by the word 'trimmed' in the table above.
Note 3 - Was 1929 the only year that separate Overseas/Canadian editions were printed? - More info on this would be appreciated
