Advertises American Tales, which was later taken over by Beadle.

LeBlanc's listing indicates that he only knew of one issue (the first, which he had seen); however, it was later amended to include four titles. It is not indicated where the additional three titles were found, but an advertisement in Uniform Trade List Circular for January, 1867 matches (apart from a typo in the title of No. 3, where LeBlanc wrote "Hand" instead of "Bond"). Additional information about No. 2 comes from the Wright American Fiction copy of the issue, located by Cary Sternick.
