Sounds like another Garry job to me, but why cannot you just get it from T&FN for all of those years ? I am not at home ( where my COMPLETE collection of T&FN's is ) but I am pretty sure, almost positive, that there is a top 50 , both World and US list printed every year.
So assuming you do not have all those issues, and unless Garry/someone else posts the info today, I will look it all up tonight for you !
The reason I am so sure sbout the lists is that I started a graph about 20 years ago, retroactive to 1947 or 1948, that charts # 1, # 10, and # 50 (maybe # 25 ) every year !
So I will just pull out my chart to give you your answers.
