Makers of History Series- John B. Alden

This entry was posted in Illustrated Biographies on .

John B. Alden, New York

It is not clear if this publisher printed the entire 20 book set or only a few isolated volumes. My guess would be that Alden published all of the titles.
The date of publication is not known. These books are quite uncommon.

As of this point in time, the following title have been noted:
History of Julius Caesar
History of William the Conqueror
History of Hernando Cortez

Cloth. 7.5” x 5”.

Makers of History- Log Cabin Press

This entry was posted in Illustrated Biographies on .

The Log Cabin Press published the paperback Log Cabin Series. I believe that this series was published in the early 1920’s and consisted of more than fifty books.

Note that the Cleopatra book states Log Cabin Library on the title page. It is unclear to me what distinguishes the “Series” from the “Library”.

As of this time the following Abbott books are known to be part of this list:

Nero
Julius Caesar
Josephine
Cleopatra

Josephine mistakenly gives the author as Jacob not John S. C. Abbott.
