User Summary: The Home for October, 1859, says that No. 3 is "In press," but the New York Tribune, February 15, 1862, still lists only two numbers of the Dialogues. Apparently this number was not issued until long after the firm had become Beadle & Co., and had moved to 118 William Street in 1863. While the Library of Congress copy has written in it the date of deposit for copyright as February 2, 1865, the booklet contains a copyright date of 1864 and was actually issued on January 3, 1865, according to newspaper advertisements. The cover of the first edition is cream colored, but the booklet is of the size of the Dime Novels. There are 96 pages plus several of advertisements of other Beadle publications. Louis Legrand is still given as "Editor."
