Notes / Commentary:

The series was not physically numbered, though some advertisements included a numbered, roughly alphabetical listing. Because advertisements issued at different times contained more or fewer titles, this numbering is not consistent; thus, the titles are not numbered here.

The LeBlanc listing was missing several titles. The following were added from the 1891 edition of the Illustrated Holiday Catalogue from A. C. McClurg & Company, Chicago: Fairy Tales from Brentano, From Powder Monkey to Admiral, Hendrick the Hunter, James Braithwaite, Life at Sea, My Tour in Europe, Peter Trawl, Shore and Ocean, Stanley Graham, The Cruise of the Snow Bird and Wild Adventures Around the Pole. Two titles in LeBlanc's original listing are not found in this catalogue and may indicate typographical errors -- for example, Young Folks' Book of Books. They are retained here for completeness, until more evidence can be found.
