Publisher's Blurb:

Early advertisement: "We are always on the lookout for something new and we now want to call your attention to the following list of books containing NEW STORIES OF STIRRING ADVENTURE, comprising Sixteen Stories by the most popular authors, each one containing 250 to 350 pages and bound in a striking and handsome new paper cover printed in five colors. Price, 25 cents each; or five books for $1.00."

Later advertisement: "We have just published the following list of Adventure Stories by popular authors for which your order is solicited. They are for sale by all newsdealers for 25 cents each or they will be sent by the publishers by mail, postpaid, for 25 cents each, or five for only $1.00."

Physical Description: LeBlanc examined No. 9. Red with black lettering and four scenes in color on the cover. Series title at top: "New Stories of Thrilling Adventure". Story title, author and number in ribbon across the top just below series title.
Notes / Commentary: This series was first advertised as NEW STORIES OF STIRRING ADVENTURE, and later as NEW STORIES OF THRILLING ADVENTURE (or simply BOOKS OF ADVENTURE). The only copy LeBlanc examined had "Thrilling" on the cover; it is unclear whether a separate "Stirring" edition of the books exists. The advertisement for the "Stirring" version was unnumbered, but in the same order as the numbered "Thrilling" release.
