Publisher's Blurb:

"Young Broadbrim is the shrewdest and most clever boy detective that ever lived. His marvelous strength and wonderful nerve enables him to penetrade where most men would fear to go. All the tales of his adventures are absolutely new. The following is a list of the latest numbers written especially for this line." (From No. 81)


"We desire to inform our readers that after the present number, the Young Broadbrim Weekly will be discontinued. If you are especially interested in Detective Stories, we trust that you will at once look up the new series of Nick Carter's Adventures, now running in the Nick Carter Weekly. But if you wish something radically different, something right up-to-date, buy the first number of our new library, THE YOUNG ROUGH RIDERS WEEKLY. The first number will be issued next week. 'Ted Strong's Rough Riders; or, The Boys of Black Mountain', is the title and there will be a wonderfully interesting series to follow--all about Kit Summers and his Young Rough Riders, their friends and foes. Boys, there is a genuine treat in store for you in the Young Rough Riders Weekly. No. 1 issued Monday, April 18, in a beautiful cover of unique design."

Notes / Commentary:

Young Broadbrim Weekly started the week after Old Broadbrim Weekly ceased publication. Numbering continued without change in sequence.

Numbers 52 through 68 were new stories, numbers 69 through 81 were reprinted from Old Cap. Collier Library.

The copy of the S&S ledgers for this series provide less detail for Nos. 75 through 81 than for the rest of the series. Two issues (Nos. 78 and 80) list the name "Makie" or "McKie" while the remainder include only the numbers of the Old Cap. Collier issues from which they were adapted.
