Numbers 1- 104, with two copies of #90, for a total of 105 booklets. The Redemption of Marie Gordon was issued as a serial from 1926-1932 in various colored paper covers (wrappers), all with the same illustration, with an original price of ten cents each. Each issue features a black-and-white Art Deco style illustration as a frontispiece. The total page count of the serial is 3,312 pages, plus in #104, two chapters of a serial titled The Great Awakening by Helen Glyn Kingsley. Each issue is bound with one staple. The covers are stained, with small chips. There is a tear near the staple of #1. Several issues have a name written on the front cover. Numbers 1 and 104 show the most wear (#1 is pictured here). The pages are all age toned. Authorship of this serial is often attributed to Peggy Gaddis (a pseudonym used by Erolie Pearl Gaddis Dern, 1895-1966). To our knowledge, this is the only complete set available.
