Original edition in this series published as: The fortune-hunter, or, Roving Joe as miner, cowboy, trapper and hunter. This edition printed with cover illustration and template from Beadle's Pocket Library ; no. 434.
"After Ivers took over the Beadle establishment, he reprinted the first 64 numbers. They have exactly the same contents as the originals although some of the titles were slightly changed. The first number appeared January 8, 1899, and the last March 25, 1900. Some sets were printed with no wrappers and the illustration on the front page in black only, others had extra wrappers in colors, perhaps to compete with the novels of other publishers, while still others were printed throughout in blue ink. These are not listed here because they do not belong to the Beadle publications."--Johannsen, A. House of Beadle and Adams and its dime and nickel novels, volume 1, page 327.
