Additional notes

A 1983 renewal for the 1955 book 'From Zero to Infinity' by Constance Bowman Reid mentions that a portion of it had been adapted from a previous publication in Scientific American.

That renewal might cover prior publications in 1959 issues. (In any case, all 1959 issues were renewed by the magazine publisher.)

A 1988 renewal for the 1960 book 'The Scientific American Book of Projecs from the Amateur Scientist' by C. L. Stong mentions that substantial portions of it had been previously published in Scientific American. That renewal might cover prior publications in 1960 issues.
