The earliest series, originating during the middle third of that century, are heavily didactic, designed to convey moral and educational information. Many use younger children as protagonists. Rather than centering on children's adventures or travels, they describe the guilt or unhappiness caused by misbehavior, the protagonists' struggle to do right, and their eventual reconciliation with friends, family, and God - or the horrible consequences that befall those who fail to reform.
Others contain lengthy passages about geography, history, or nature with only minimal story.
Additionally, authors often developed thematic series, linked by concept rather than characters. Even when a nineteenth-century series uses continuing characters, this does not always mean they appear in prominent roles in each book. Since reform is a popular theme, a character may act as protagonist in one title, then, having triumphed over temptation, take a minor part in subsequent stories. It was not until after the s that series placed greater emphasis upon character and plot.

Early nineteenth-century series present a particular challenge to bibliographers. The initial difficulty lies in identifying them. A few authors, such as Jacob Abbott, are well known, but many other prolific writers from the period never appear in histories of children's literature. The series listed in this bibliography were found by cross-checking promising entries in the CLRC's chronological catalogue and the Philadelphia Free Library's Checklist of Children's Books against the NUC Pre Imprints and the American Catalogue, and through advertisements in the books themselves.
A second obstacle is recognizing American series, for so little is apparently known about some authors that the same title can be catalogued as American fiction in one NUC entry and British fiction in the next. This volume includes titles in debate, believing they are of interest to the reader. A third problem arises in identifying a true series, for the terms "series" and "library" were used loosely in the s.
A "library" can be either titles with related characters or an overall theme or it can mean unrelated titles, sometimes reissues, in a uniform format. Without access to many of the books or detailed information about them, it is frequently difficult to tell whether a book is actually part of a series.

It is also difficult to ascertain whether a book contains one story or a story collection. Those which were clearly unrelated titles or story collections--such as "Aunt Fanny's" Nightcaps or Popguns books-have been omitted. There is still a need for a more comprehensive bibliography of nineteenth-century series, one encompassing boys', girls', and miscellaneous series, for several of the girls' series were companion series to ones for boys.
Notes at the end of those entries mention the companion series, but do not give detailed listings. Contemporary Series The last fifteen years have witnessed major developments in children's series. Paperback series, once predominantly the domain of religious publishers, appeared with increasing frequency in the late s, and as of this writing almost all major publishing houses have paperback imprints for children. The new format led to a renaissance in the genre. Girls' Series Books listed only three series published between and ; since then, over additional series have appeared.
These new series reflect current publishing trends, which, ironically, hearken back to the approach used by dime novel publishers: many series are owned or controlled by publishers, who employ a variety of pseudonymous writers to meet monthly or bimonthly publication schedules. Three categories of series have become more prominent since These contain books by different authors, centering on a particular theme frequently romance , and do not use continuing characters.
The books bear the series title and usually a volume number on the cover or spine. Easy- readers or "chapter books," i. These feature continuing characters in light adventures or mysteries; the books use large type, simple sentence structure, and often a limited vocabulary. A third category, interactive fiction, emerged in the s. Rather than a continuing narrative, interactive fiction offers multiple story choices and different endings.
Several other tactics, occasionally evident in older series, continue in newer books. One is the series based on a common location. Another approach employs continuing characters in secondary roles, helping progatonists featured in only one book of the series. The phenomenal popularity of some series has also engendered spinoffs. Publishers also discovered the appeal of "specials"--longer books, issued once or twice a year, using the same characters as in regular series.
