New York: American Tract Society, n.d. [circa 1840s-1850s]. Edition not stated. Octavo (15.5cm); forest green cloth, decoratively stamped in blind, gilt on spine; 32+32+32+32pp, four frontispieces.

This slim tract from the American Tract Society does not credit authors for any of the four stories featured within: The Martyrs of Madagascar, The Youthful Disciple, The Memoir of James Alexander Spence, and The History of Pontius Pilate. Likewise, no date of publication is specified, though OCLC lists its publication year as 1853; The Youthful Disciple was previously published by the London-based Religious Tract Society in 1843. The b/w engravings bear William Bookhaut's signature.
