Notes / Commentary: "Some time during August, 1878, with No. 8, the name Frank Starr was dropped from the title and it became simply The New York Library, although the publishers' name was unchanged. On No. 27, Beadle and Adams were given as publishers, and the title was altered to Beadle's New York Dime Library. With this change the firm name, Frank Starr & Co., dropped out of existence."--Johannsen, A. House of Beadle and Adams and its dime and nickel novels
