"BEADLE'S DIME NOVELS! Incomparable in excellence--unapproachable in Price.

The series of novels published by Beadle & Company, No. 118 William-St., New-York, possess several distinguishing features, which the public should ever bear in mind in the midst of the multiplicity of "ten cent" and other books (chiefly reprints) which have recently been put upon the market.

1. Beadle's Dime Novels are original.

2. Beadle's Dime Novels are written by selected authors.

3. Beadle's Dime Novels are produced by such authors as

Mrs. Ann S. StephensWarren St. John
Mrs. Metta V. VictorEdward S. Ellis
Mrs. M. A. DenisonHon. A. J. H. Duganne
Mrs. F. F. BarrittJohn S. Warren

etc., etc.

4. Beadle's Dime Novels are not "sensational." They embrace only stories of Border Life and Character, Indian Warfare and Frontier Experience, Early Settlement Romance and Fact, Revolutionary Events and Incidents, Sea and Ship Life, &c., &c., &c.

5. Beadle's Dime Novels are particularly adapted to the Houses and Firesides of America, and may safely be placed in the hands of young as well as old.

6. Beadle's Dime Novels are good, pure, and reliable; they are exhilarating without being feverishly or morbidly exciting; they are elaborated in drama, disseminating in character, choice in incident, and impressive in denouement; are adapted to all classes, readable at all times, fit for all places. These general features are "representative" ones, and should attract the attention of all persons in pursuit of the best romances in the most available form at the least possible expense.

Beadle & Company's Publications all bear the imprint of "ONE DIME" (coin), which, by a special decision of the Supreme Court, is their exclusive and protected trade mark."--New York Tribune, November 12, 1863
