What's missing from this book?

I just received a copy of the new Adventures of Superboy hardcover, reprinting stories published between 1945 and 1947. I look forward to reading this soon, but in the meantime I made a quick checklist of what is and isn't included in this volume.

  • New cover by Michael Cho? Check
  • The Superboy stories from More Fun Comics #101 to #107, and Adventure Comics #103 to #121? Check
  • Covers to the original issues? Most of them. (I assume all covers featuring Superboy were included, which sounds reasonable.)
  • Credits for writers and artists of each story or cover? Check
  • Credit for the editor of the original stories? Check (Jack Schiff, in case you were wondering)
  • Some sort of introduction or article describing the origin of the character or the contents of the book? No
  • Text at the beginning of the book, or the indicia, or the contents page or anywhere else saying "Superboy created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster? NOWHERE TO BE FOUND

Oh, my. That is so, so wrong.
