restricted access APPENDIX: Maxwell Production/Sales
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

■ APPENDIX ■ Maxwell Production/Sales Production/sales figures for Maxwell cars are elusive. They have been acquired from various sources, as indicated below. Complicating matters is the fact that the company initially reported such figures according to the fiscal year (September through August), then later per calendar year. Other sources do not indicate which type of reporting they used, fiscal or calendar, which probably accounts for differences in their recording. 1904 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10 a 1905 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 32 a 1906 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3,000 a 1907 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 4,000 a 1908 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 5,000 a 1909 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 9,000 a 1910 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10,000 b 1911 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 16,000 b 1912 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 15,000 c 1913 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 17,000 b,c 1914 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 18,000 b,c 1915 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 44,000 b,d 1916 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 69,000 b 1917 . . . . . . . . . . .75,000 b,c; 76,490 e 1918 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 34,000 b 1919 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 50,000 b 1920 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 34,168 f 1921 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 16,000 c 1922 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 54,872 g 1923 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 65,119 g 1924 . . . .
