|Notes / Commentary:||
The detailed publication history of this series is unknown; some volumes are attributed to Mershon, some to George Munro's Sons (including the last known, no. 512), and some mention Arthur Hall (for example, no. 500 is described in WorldCat as having "Arthur Hall" on the wrapper and "George Munro's Sons" on the title page).
Since the series is not dated, it would indicate that it was published after the postal laws regarding serial publications were repealed, which was in 1904. George Munro's Sons ceased publishing in 1905. Therefore the dates would necessarily be 1904 or 1905.
Although the books were not priced, it appears that 25 cents would have been the selling price to be in competition with other publications of the period.
