Deadwood Dick Library
Deadwood Dick Library, Cleveland, Ohio : A. Westbrook, 1899. These are the prettiest dime novels I ever handled. The Westbrook versions of Deadwood Dick were tiny, about four and a half by six inches, ideal for hiding within a textbook for surreptious reading. They consisted of 32 pages of teeny-weeny type but are remarkably easy on the eyes. They were copyright to one James Sullivan.
