The first edition of Extraneus, which is out of print, was originally published in 1986 as one volume of xviii + 777 pages.  As more and more data was collected, Extraneus was divided into separate books.   The Extraneus series now consists of twelve books contained within four volumes, plus a fifth volume which contains other related documents.  Those twelve books now total approximately 5,000 pages.   Some of the data from the fifth volume is contained here on this web site.  The rest of the fifth volume will probably not be re-published.  For further information regarding the organization of Extraneus, please refer to the Preface to the Second Edition of Extraneus.
