So Davis Dresser started writing them in 1939, and he churned out one score and ten of them, then sold out to someone who kept it up as a house name? Why did he use the pseudonym? Did he intend to just do a regular series, but when it got so popular others saw the potential for, as they call it now, "branding," and started the magazine and expanded the line? How popular were the books and the magazine?
