Pulp #28 -- September 23, 2011

Before the pulps, there were the dime novels. The 30-July-1898 issue of Tip Top Weekly featured Frank Merriwell. Merriwell was an upright young man, a talented sportsman who neither smoked nor drank. This is the best cover illustration I have seen from the series. Be sure to click on the image to see a larger version.

The image is from a wonderful Stanford University site, "Dime Novels and Penny Dreadfuls":
