The Vol. 1 was a loose-leaf book with an orange label on the front of the binder; I think some of the facsimile editions reproduce this, with a Treasury tag holding the pages together. The blue PNs came in around 1942, as separate booklets that could fit inside a flying boot for easy reference.
Thank you.
