"Many of [the cover illustrations], apparently, were drawn by George G. White, although, as usual with this artist, they are not signed. Most of them were engraved by N. Orr."--Johannsen, A. House of Beadle and Adams and its dime and nickel novels, volume 1, pages 395-398.
"Still later, No. 1 was issued in cream colored covers of the same form as the preceding, by Beadle & Co., 118 William Street, and was deposited for copyright on January 16, 1864. After that it came out with an illustration on the front cover, 'The Crowning of Florence Nightingale,' and had the usual orange wrappers. It is 6 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches in size, and has the same contents as the former revised version."--Johannsen, A. House of Beadle and Adams and its dime and nickel novels, volume 1, page 398, no. 1.
