Series Notes:
1. The books of this series are indistinguishable from those of the Vademecum Series (#180) published in 1903. The cloth can be a variety of colors and there are close to 40 different applique paintings. See http://henryaltemus.com/vademecum.htm .
2. These books have a labeled box which denotes this series.
3. The numbering is the same as that seen with the Devotional Series (#75).
4. With the exception of Daily Food for Christians and Stepping Heavenward, all the titles on this list were dropped from the Vademecum Series between 1903 and 1904. It appears that Altemus carved out a new series of popular titles from left over books from the 1903 Vademecum volumes.
