Publisher's Blurb: "Youth is full of optimism and demands literature that is optimistic in tone and fascinating in plot. Nowhere can YOUTH be so well served with reading matter as in the Bracebridge Hemyng stories of the adventures of Jack Harkaway. Jack is a splendid, manly character, full of life and strength and curiosity, which leads him into paths little followed by boys but of which every boy is eager to read. There is not a single boy who will not be benefited by these stories if he reads them. They are clean, wholesome, and in every way fit for boys. Price Ten Cents. New Titles Issued Regularly. Fine, Colored Covers."
Major Author(s): Bracebridge Hemyng (for last 5 issues the author is shown as Author of "Jack Harkaway")
Notes / Commentary: List of stories and dates taken from Street & Smith ledgers from the Street & Smith archives at Syracuse University. The ledger shows the series title toe be "Harkaway Series." The issues examined by LeBlanc were from No. 7 to No. 24 and show the series title to be "Jack Harkaway Stories." The first few issues may indeed have been titled "Harkaway Series," but LeBlanc personally doubted it. Someone holding the first few issues could confirm the series name from the beginning.
