LeBlanc believed Homewood Pub. to be W. B. Conkey & Co. It is not clear exactly what the relationship was between these publishers, but they published many similar (or even identical) titles, including their own version of the Franklin Series.

LeBlanc's listing did not include any titles; nos. 2 and 7-12 come from Nos. 16-17 come from WorldCat listings. These titles are confirmed and expanded by a listing of nos. 1-22 provided by Cary Sternick from an advertisement in a copy of no. 8.
