5.34.36.3 Fictitious and incorrect dates. Always make a Note on manufacture statement to indicate the source of the information if the reason for supplying the actual date is not apparent from the rest of the description (see Date of manufacture, 5.33.352.4).

5.34.36.4 Julian/Old Style Dates. Always make a Note on manufacture statement indicating the basis for the supplied year if the transcribed year of manufacture is based on the Julian calendar (sometimes called the Old Style calendar) and the manifestation is known to have been manufactured in the following year according to the modern European calendar (see Date of manufacture, 5.33.352.5).

5.34.36.5 Multiple adjustments or additions. If the Date of manufacture requires more than a single adjustment or addition, always make a Note on manufacture statement giving the source of the supplied dates (see 5.33.352.7).

5.34.36.6 Date of manufacture supplied from reference sources. If the Date of manufacture does not appear on the manifestation but is known, always give the source of the supplied date and any needed explanation in a Note on manufacture statement (see 5.33.353.1).

5.34.36.9 Date of manufacture on part pages. If parts of a manifestation have individual title pages bearing dates that differ from the date pertaining to the whole manifestation, always give these additional dates in a Note on manufacture statement (see Date of manufacture, 5.33.356.1).

5.34.37 Other manufacture details

5.34.37.1 Make a Note on manufacture statement for any other manufacture details that are considered important (see 5.01.1.4).

Example:
This is ostensibly an English printing as the manifestation contains press figures, which is an English trait, and its signatures are centred in the direction line. It is an almost identical copy of the seventh London edition, dated 1779, the main differences being there are no catchwords and the use of French ornaments. It is likely a piracy, printed by an English printer employed by Besongne in Rouen
(Comment: The imprint reads “Rouen, printed for JJ. Besongne, book-seller, in Grosse Horloge’s street, M.DCC.LXXXI”)
