There seem to have been 2 editions. The first set were published per the order of the 2nd Khalifa. The new edition seem to have been put together by Dost Muhammad Shahid after 1984, these can be found online herein. More to come on this (under construction). Amir Muneer reports that after Dost Muhammad Shahid died, a Qadiani-Ahmadi named Asfand Yar Muneeb took over as the official historian.

Who is Mawlānā Dost Muhammad Shāhid ? Mawlānā Dost Muhammad Shāhid was the official historian of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. He wrote the 5 volume history of the Community known as “Tārīkh-e-Ahmadiyya” (History of Ahmadiyya). On August 28, 2009 in the month of Ramadān, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad (may Allah be his helper), delivered a khutbah (Friday Sermon) about Mawlānā Shāhid at his passing. He also wrote a research article on the southasian Islamist group Jama’at-e-Islami in 1951 under guidance of Caliph II of the Ahmadiyya Community. In 1992, he was awarded “Man of the Year” by the International Biographical Centre in Cambridge UK. In 1982 he was imprisoned for a few days in the way of God. In 1988 he was imprisoned in Gurjanwala District Jail, Pakistan. He continued to give Dars al-Qur’an in jail and also did Tabligh. He had to do hard labour while in prison. In 1974, he was part of the Ahmadi delegation representing the Ahmadiyya Jama’āt in the National Assembly of Pakistan defending their case as Muslims (when the government of Pakistan under Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto declared Ahmadis as non-Muslims per constitutional law). He was the last surviving member of that delegation and subsequently made television programs on MTA (Muslim Television Ahmadiyya) of what transpired then. A few days before passing away, he dreamed that the first Muslim Nobel Laureate in science, Dr. Abdus Salam, said the Islamic greeting ‘as-salāmu ‘alaykum’ (may peace be upon you) to him. At any distress he would say ‘write to the Khalīfah of the time.’ He had eight thousand books in his personal library.
