Notes / Commentary:

Series advertised as "Petersons' 25 Cent Series" and later as "Peterson's New 25c Series." Of five issues examined by LeBlanc, only one carried the series title as indicated above. The series was not numbered as is the case with all T. B. Peterson publications examined. Evidently T. B. Peterson did not take advantage of the postal regulations of 1879. They advertised they would send any item to a purchaser on receipt of the price postpaid.

LeBlanc lists Cliquot as being part of a combined volume with Run Down. However, a stand-alone copy of Cliquot digitized by Villanova University includes advertisements for "Petersons' 25 Cent Series, though the book itself has no series title or number printed on it. It seems possible that both combined and stand-alone editions of this title exist.
