Notes / Commentary: "While these ten were advertised by Beadle as the 'First Series,' it is doubtful whether any more were published. The actual day of issue of each number is unknown. The back page is devoted to advertisements of other Beadle publications. The songs themselves were printed from the stereotype plates of other songbooks, even the page numbers of the originals remain, so that No. 9, for example, has the pages numbered 12, 13, 8, 33, and 20. The One Cent Song Book was apparently the successor to the Pocket Songster, which ended with No. 6, in December, 1867. They are very rare."--Johannsen, A.
