Boys of 1745                                 monogram             

The Boys of 1745 at the capture of Louisburg, by James Otis

        Dana Estes, 1895

Otis was a prolific writer of children's books, authoring more than 170 titles. This is a common design for his titles, one where the monogram is not easily noted. I have identified Sacker designs for at least twenty-four Otis books. A number of Otis titles came out with a variant binding, seen below.
