Fabulous b/w frontis by Howard Heath and a line drawing map in the text. Frontis illustration has pencil lines and two traced pennies on verso, which produced some raised circular indentations on the frontis but it displays well (see pic).

The stores are full of adventure, yet clean, bright and up-to-date. The first volume tells of the exciting scenes in the early days of the Alaskan gold fields. The next book takes "The Boy Fortune Hunters" to the "Canal Zone," and the third story is filled with stirring incidents in a trip through Egypt. The fourth book relates exciting adventures in the Flowery Kingdom and the fifth and sixth stories detail further adventures in Yucatan and among the South Sea Islands.
