Notes / Commentary:

The title of series appears at top. No ads have been found bearing this title. Ads show series as Celebrated Highwaymen and Housebreakers without numbers. It is unclear from LeBlanc's notes whether the same stories were issued under two separate series titles, or if these are two names for the same set of books.

The same author wrote the full series of seven books. No. 4 shows author of all other stories.
