For my history of physics readers who work with the Annalen der Physik I reproduce a useful little key to the two-tier numbering system for the Annalen's first and second series. The tables come from Sachregister zu den Annalen der Physik und Chemie Poggendorr'sche Folge... published in Leipzig in 1888. Up to this point the physics journal had been published since 1799 in two series for a total of 160 volumes (plus a Jubelband and eight volumes of Erganzungsbaende); some people reference the appearance of articles via the total volume number, while others (myself included) reference the series (as series "I volume whatever" or series "II, volume _____". There is a handy table at the very end of the Sachregister that correlates the two "systems". Follow this link for the key.
