The Old Cap. Collier Library follows an irregular publication schedule, including weekly. The novels' format changes frequently: 7 x 9 inches (nos. 1-330), 8 x 12 inches (nos. 331-394), with 32+ pages. Issues cost 5 cents. Cover art develops from buff or brick non-pictorial (1-330) to b/w pictorial covers (331-822). Series consists primarily of detective and mystery stories reprinted or written for this library. Beginning in 1898, issues contain reprinted serials (primarily school stories and comic stories from "Golden Hours"); the rights to many of these stories would later be purchased by Street and Smith in 1902 and used (with editorial changes) in some of their weeklies, including Nick Carter Weekly and Old Broadbrim Weekly.
