Publisher's Blurb: "Oliver Optic, as William T. Adams was known, became famous for writing boys' books many years ago. His work was not just a fad--it was destined to live as the best and most wholesome effort ever made by a single man to uplift boys of every condition--rich and poor, good and bad. Millions of copies of his books have been sold in all bindings, but we are the only publishers who ever presented his new copyrighted stories in book form at ten and fifteen cents the copy. Considering the startling merit of Optic books, every mother and father ought to rejoice at the opportunity to place such good wholesome reading in their children's hands. We have just prepared a new edition, at ten cents, of some of the best-known books, by this author, and urge for them the careful consideration of the public and trade. Handsome covers."
