Series Notes:
1. These 18 books were published in 1900 just prior to their inclusion and publication as part of the Young People's Library Format 2 later in 1900.
2. The cover pictures are the same (except for color variations) as the exact title when it was part of the Young People's Library (Series #202) and Stories from History Series (#170).
3. The title page says Henry Altemus indicating an early 1900 publication date since the book is copyrighted in 1900.
4. The title page is glossy and the reverse of the title page states the name of the series and a list of the books.
5. The books of this series are incredibly rare especially as compared to the other two series that have the same titles (#202/#170) the books of which are very common.
