This series is somewhat of an oddity due to the huge time gaps that occurred between the release of volumes 6 & 7 and volumes 8 & 9.
All volumes originally published by Cupples & Leon.
In the late 30's or early 40's, Whitman Publishing Company reprinted volumes 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9. New dustjackets were designed and the illustrated bindings were eliminated as were the internal illustrations.
