Notes / Commentary: This series was not listed by LeBlanc and was reported by Cary Sternick. He speculates: "These are not dated but I would guess mid to late 1890’s. The series was published by John W. Lovell for the Prudential Insurance Co. Most likely this was after John W. Lovell Co. went out of business and Lovell was attempting one of his ill-fated returns to the book world."
