Henry Altemus Company


A.J. Holman Company


The A.J. Holman Company reprinted the four volume Uncle Jim's Bible Stories Series (http://henryaltemus.com/series/series177.htm). Hartwell James authored these books and initially Altemus published them between 1916 and 1923.

Interestingly Holman had been a major Altemus competitor for the sale of Bibles in the 1800's. Holman was still publishing Bibles however well after Altemus had gone out of business.

Bible Story Books by Hartwell James
1. Uncle Jim's Bible Stories
2. Uncle Jim's Stories from the New Testament
3. Uncle Jim's Stories from the Old Testament
4. Boys of the Bible

Both the Henry Altemus Company and the A.J. Holman Company books are 7.5 x 5.25.

The books were probably published in the late 1930's but I have not confirmed this as of yet.
