The text on the right is a transcription of the actual catalog ad wording. The ad number appears in parentheses in front of the Ad title, a (0) means the ad was not numbered on the page. The price after the ad is the catalog listed sale price.

Some of the ads have an author's note. Those are my personal comments about the ad and may change as I learn more.
