Homewood Publishing Company, Chicago (1902-)

The Homewood Publishing Company was incorporated in 1902. Its principals were Arthur B. Schaffner, Harry Goodman and Arthur L. Schwartz. This firm published many of its books in the same formats as Conkey, another Chicago publisher. Their relationship is unclear at this time.

Both Tom Brown titles were part of its Abbey Series, the Library Edition and its Calumet Series (wraps). Also shown below is a Tom Brown book that is identical to the Conkey Young Folk's Classics title. I believe that Homewood published both of the Tom Brown books in this format.

Abbey Series (1902)

This series contained reprints of 391 popular titles. The books are 12 mos. and were priced at 25 cents each.
