Notes / Commentary: In 1902, Street & Smith gave high respectability to the Merriwell stories by publishing them in cloth. This was in their Boys' Own Library. After six issues, Street & Smith discontinued their publication and leased the rights to the Federal Book Co., who reprinted the same six issues. When the lease expired, Street & Smith sold the rights to the David McKay Company, who reprinted the original six and continued for 22 more, for a total of 28. McKay issued the series in three editions. The first with Maroon covers which were issued for a total of 24 issues. A tan edition was then published with a frontispiece on laid paper. All 28 issues were reprinted in this format. They followed this with a reprinting without the frontispiece. In the listing below, numbers are assigned for easy reference. There were no numbers used in the publishing of the cloth bound volumes.
