Notes / Commentary: "The Boy's Library, being intended primarily for boys, caused Beadle to make changes in a few of the reprinted titles; for example, the word "love" was apparently considered unsuitable for boys—being something about which presumably they knew nothing—and was omitted."--Johannsen, A. House of Beadle and Adams and its dime and nickel novels, volume 1, page 321.
