The American Forts Series is a collection of nine volumes published by Prentice-Hall between 1965 and 1973 which were done under the editorial control of Stewart H. Holbrook. All of the volumes were released in a similar, small quarto (9.25" high by 6.25" deep) format in illustrated dust jackets. First editions of all of the books are identified by the absence of any other printing information on the copyright page or, in the case of the last volume in the series, by a number line with the number "1" appearing. The books are typically illustrated with reproductions of contemporary art, as well as maps and photographs of the remains of the forts and sketches or designs of the actual fort.
