Irwin's Six Penny Tales

in 1867 there appeared a short-lived series entitled Irwin's Six Penny Tales, published and copyrighted by Irwin & Co., 102 Nassau Street, New York. These little booklets (Fig. 44) were 4 7/8 inches by 3 3/16 inches in size, with a black woodcut on the front of the buff colored wrappers, and contained 68 pages. No sale price is given on the covers, but presumably "six penny" meant six cents; the small format and the few pages suggest this. No advertisement of the series has been seen, and it is unknown, at present, whether more than two numbers were issued.
