Rover Boys in Business or the Search for the Missing Bonds
Since the publication of the first volume "The Rover Boys At School", some years ago, over three million copies of these books have been sold. They are well written stories dealing with the Rover boys in a great many different kinds of activities and adventures. Each volume holds something of interest to every adventure loving boy. It's generally accepted that Stratemeyer wrote all of the books. He is on record as stating it is his favorite series. Volumes 1 - 11 of this series were published by Mershon starting , then Stitt starting , then Chatterton-Peck starting All these books are very difficult to locate.

In John Wanamaker reprinted at least volumes using the Mershon plates with a modified title page and internal illustrations as part of the Wanamaker Young People's Library. There appear to be two binding styles and various binding colors have been seen green, olive, maroon. The Wanamaker reprints are of a very high quality better than the Mershon editions and are the rarest of all Rover Boys editions. The green and brown bindings are illustrated imitating the design of the earlier publishers and had plain white endpapers, while the orange binding is not illustrated and had green striped endpapers.
Sometime in the late 's or early 's Whitman Publishing reprinted volumes 1, 2, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, All new full color dustjackets were created for these books. They contain no internal illustrations. Starting with volume 21, the stories recounted the adventures of the four sons of the original three Rover Boys Tom, Dick and Sam , who by that time had married and settled into adjoining brownstones on Riverside Drive in New York City.
Arthur Prager's book Rascals At Large has a chapter devoted to the antics of the brothers Rover and I recommend it to all fans. They are the sons of wealthy businessman Anderson Rover and live on a Hudson River valley farm with their uncle and aunt, Randolph and Martha Rover. The Rovers have the distinction of being the most high-handed and obnoxious series book "heroes" ever. Brother Tom, the "practical joker", is a borderline psychotic who indulges in "jokes" so cruel, mean and dangerous that they would no doubt land anyone else in jail or, at least, in civil court. Wherever they go, the Rovers are snobbish, haughty, condescending and downright mean to all they meet.
What is even more amazing is that these people accept the Rovers' obnoxious behavior with an obsequiousness normally reserved for Oriental potentates and extremely rich, superannuated relatives. In the first 12 volumes, the Rovers were students at Putnam Hall, a military academy run by family friend, Captain Putnam.
Their adventures while attending this institution took them far and wide on land, sea and in the air. After leaving Putnam Hall, the boys went on to college and eventually into business and, finally, marriage - an event which triggered the Rover Boys Second Series. The Rovers were a lusty lot and wasted no time making the acquaintance of Dora Stanhope and her cousins Grace and Nellie Laning.
Their "friends" included would-be poet John "Songbird" Powell, the dudish William Philander Potts who was subjected to the brunt of Tom's practical "jokes" and the fat German Hans Mueller subject of much low ethnic humor among others. Handyman Alexander Pop, one of the typical shuffling, eye-rolling Negroes so prevalent in early Stratemeyer works, also bore the brunt of much low humor.
Stanhope and lusted for her fortune; Dan Baxter and Tad Sobber among others were fellow students who constantly battled the Rovers. The girls were quickly packed off to boarding school and were seldom heard from again. Meanwhile, the four cousins, while attending the Colby Hall academy run by old family friend Larry Colby, had a series of adventures that closely parallel those of their fathers.
While Putnam Hall is not the real name of the particular place of learning I had in mind while penning this tale for your amusement and instruction, there is really such a school, and dear Captain Putnam is a living person, as are also the lively, wide-awake, fun-loving Rover brothers, Dick, Tom, and Sam, and their schoolfellows, Larry, Fred, and Frank. The same can be said, to a certain degree, of the bully Dan Baxter, and his toady, the sneak commonly known as "Mumps. Trusting that this tale will find as much favor in your hands as have my previous stories, I remain, Affectionately and sincerely yours, Arthur M.
