"The booklet was completed on June 25, 1959, on Velin Licorne from the Papeteries D'Arches, for Angel Records by the S.N. Mercure, Paris."
"The painting reproduced on the cover page, "Calvary" by Paul Veronese (1528-1588) belonging to the Paris Louvre, was printed on the offset presses of the Imprimerie Philippe"
Three different deadwax symbols indicates lacquers cut at the Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Scranton, PA. The "IAM" dates Side D to no earlier than 1963. The "Anvil / Lathe" was used prior to 1963, when the "IAM" was first used. Scranton used the "&" to indicate that the lacquer was in stereo.
All of these have been modified from their usual form, which may indicate Canadian pressings using Scranton lacquers. The meaning of the elaborate "d" on side C remains unknown.
