The Bonar number refers to the number assigned to the letter by Andrew Bonar in his edition of the Letters, published in 1891. This edition was reprinted by the Banner of Truth in 1984 and is currently out of print. This edition is the most complete, with 365 letters in more-or-less chronological order. There is a short life of S.R., biographical notes, a glossary, and more.
The Banner Paperback number refers to a different set of numbers assigned to the letters in the current paperback edition. This edition has 69 letters and has somewhat more modern language than the Bonar edition. There are some biographical notes appended to the end of the book. This inexpensive resource is highly recommended and may be ordered from the Cumberland Valley Bible Book Service. Their US phone number is 1-800-656-0231, or +1 717 249 0231.
The Hugh Martin number refers to a text file at CCEL. The URL is http://ccel.wheaton.edu/r/rutherford/letters/letters.txt. This is a 240K file by Hugh Martin, containing about 70 letters (different letters than the paperback). This file is useful, however most of the letters are abridged and the file is marred by many spelling errors. It also contains a helpful glossary and some biographical notes.
