Publisher's Blurb: "I desire to call your attention to the new publication offering complete stories at the nominal price of five cents each. Each number is bound in handsome paper covers and contains a complete story by a popular American or English author, among whom are May Agnes Fleming, Author of 'Dora Thorne', Charles Dickens, Charles Reade, Mrs. O. F. Walton, author of "A Bad Boy's Diary", William Black, Mary Cecil Hay. All who read choice fiction can at once see the advantage of a publication over those which have continued stories from week to week or from month to month, as in this publication every story is complete, and they are not short sketches, but stories which if issued in regular book form would make from 280 to 350 pages each. Price of each number, only 5 cents. It is issued monthly. Sold by all booksellers and news dealers, or mailed to any address on receipt of price."
Notes / Commentary: The publisher's blurb mentions some authors for whom no specific titles are listed; it is possible that the series ended before all planned titles were released, or that more titles exist that have not been rediscovered yet.
