Publisher: Beadle and Company (New York (N.Y.): 141 William St.) -- United States
Category: Format : Small Booklet
Issues: 22
Dates: Late 1860 to May 1, 1861
Columns: 1
Price: 15¢
Size: 6 5/8" x 4 1/2"
Pages: 96-128
Physical Description: Except for the wrappers, each issue is identical with the corresponding number in Beadle's Dime Novels. Some of the first thirteen issues were most likely put out as unbound signatures covered in special wrappers with the higher 15¢ price.
Notes / Commentary: "No copies of the low numbers have been found, but all copies seen from No. 17 on, carry at the bottom of the front cover, below the name of the publishers, the imprint of R. Coburn, New Orleans. This suggests that these booklets were issued for the Southern trade, where the cost of shipment made the ten cent price prohibitive."--Johannsen, A.
