RFC2616 talks about 41, where one of them is reserved, but not used (306).
There are only 50 in total and not 57 because there are gaps.

The remaining 9:

426 belongs to RFC2817 (1)
102, 207, 422, 423, 424, 507 belong to RFC2518 (6)
506 belongs to RFC2295 (1)
510 belongs to RFC2774 (1)

So I guess it would make sense to have links to all five RFC's above.
