Alexander Belford was one of
the founders of several book publishing firms. The Belford Brothers in
Toronto, Belford, Clarke and Company in Chicago and finally his last
hurrah, Alexander Belford and Company in 1899 in Chicago.
The Alexander Belford Company published books only in 1899. The only
Peck book it published was the first edition of Peck's Uncle Ike and
the Red Headed Boy. It was printed in wraps as Volume 1 in the Belford
Series (25 cents) and in hardcover (50 cents) (see below).
Both books are 12 mos.
