Publisher's Blurb: "Marvelous Prices! Books for the Million. Complete novels and other works by famous authors almost given away. The following books are published in neat pamphlet form, and all are printed from good type on good paper. They treat of a great variety of subjects, and we think no one can examine the list without finding many that he or she would like to possess. In cloth bound forms these books would cost $1.00 each. Each book is complete in itself."
Notes / Commentary: LeBlanc examined only one issue, no. 6. The original LeBlanc listing included only numbers 1-45 and 65-68. Number 54 was added based on a WorldCat listing. Most of LeBlanc's dates appear to be approximate and have been corrected using WorldCat data where available.
