New Jersey Telephone Books

This is a list of all the New Jersey telephone books in my collection at its peak. It probably represents all of the telephone books issued for New Jersey in the 1960s, except a few yellow pages-only books. I compiled it from an index card file. Many of the books are gone now, so I can't verify the information. Sometimes, when I acquired a new telephone book, I added it to the same card as an older one, without carefully checking the geographic coverage; therefore, the last two columns may not be valid over the entire period, but they're probably quite close.
