Hassan Straightshanks (Same comment applies for both appearances of the name):  The statement of responsibility is transcribed even though the true identities are unknown or simply fictitious; an explanatory note is made, which may be deemed unnecessary in some cataloging institutions (1G10).

Endicott & Sweet? and Endicott & Swett?:  The place of publication and publisher are conjectured based on the probable copyright holder; evidence is such that these conjectures may appear in the body of the entry with a question mark.
