This is a table of small books ordered using the serial numbers that Carr gave to them. Most of the first numbers from 1 to 18 were allocated retrospectively; the higher numbers were allocated currently, as titles were published. If a serial number is not listed, then it was not specified in any small book that has been seen so far. There may have been more numbers allocated, as not all later impressions have been seen. It is not know why some numbers have been allocated to more than one title. For example nine titles have been seen which are numbered 71. Perhaps they were all published in 1971?
The first 10 titles of small books listed in Tennyson's Lincolnshire Verse and the first impression of poems by Edward Thomas, were, in alphabetical order (with the serial number in parentheses, if one was given): Barnes (7), Blake (92), Clare (1), Herrick (9), Marvell (3), Khayyam (92), Owen, Rossetti, Tennyson and Wordsworth. So why weren't the numbers 2, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 given to these other titles as they were the first that Carr published, and why was Blake, who was definitely among the first poets published by Carr, given number 92, the same number as Omar Khayyam?
