Physical Description:

"The wrappers were printed on white paper, blank inside, and with a Beadle advertisement on the back. The front wrapper carries a 4 by 3 3/8 inch colored illustration in the center and the title of the series, in a ribbon streamer, at the top. The title of the novel is below the title of the series, and there is a cut of a dime, smaller than the coin itself, in the enclosed triangular space. At the extreme upper left, in black, are the words 'Pocket Series, No. —,' and at the right, 'Illuminated, Ten Cents.' In the center above the words 'Pocket Novels,' is the word 'Beadle's.' Series name, title of novel, and colored illustration are surrounded by a plain tinted background, either blue, green, orange, or gray. The colors of the background and even of the cuts may be different in different copies of the same number. No publisher's name appears on the wrapper, although a few carry the name of a news-dealer, but "Beadle and Adams, 98 William Street," appears on the title page. Throughout the whole series there was no change in the design of the wrapper except for the different illustration.

"Some of the novels are found dated, and when this is the case, the dates are usually four days later than the newspaper announcements of the novel as 'Out today,' reminding one forcibly of newspapers which appear on the streets four or five hours before the time given under the masthead."

--Johannsen, A. House of Beadle and Adams and its dime and nickel novels
Notes / Commentary: "All of the books are reprints of Beadle's Dime Novels, Starr's American Novels, or other Beadle publications. The pagination usually begins on page 9, regardless of whether there are 8 preliminary pages or not. The books were printed from the same stereotype plates as their predecessors. Series name, title of novel, and colored illustration are surrounded by a plain tinted background, either blue, green, orange, or gray." --Johannsen, A. House of Beadle and Adams and its dime and nickel novels
