Publisher's Blurb: Evidently a reissue of Charles M. Sheldon's religious stories and tracts with a series title. The books were evidently published without series title earlier. (Paper-covered copies of Sheldon titles published by Advance Publishing Co. without obvious series designation have been seen -- for example, digitized in the Internet Archive).
Physical Description:

No. 1 (described by LeBlanc): Designed cover on off color white paper.

No. 7 (based on bookseller photo): Cover printed in blue on off-white paper; series title, date and number at top. Title and author name incorporated into line illustration taking up most of cover.

Notes / Commentary: The LeBlanc listing included only no. 1. Nos. 2-3 were based on a listing in The Annual American Catalog, 1900-1909, page 467 (which listed Sheldon's Library rather than Sheldon Library as the series title). No. 7 was added based on a bookseller's listing.
