"Clean Aviation Stories" -- Hurst Advertisment

The adventures of "girl aviators" Peggy and Jess, and their brothers Roy and Jimsy, perfecting their late father's airplane design, foiling rivals, travelling in the desert to assist with gold mining, etc. Frank Webster-ish stories for girls.

The Girl Aviators and the Phantom Airship -- Roy Prescott was fortunate in having a sister so clever and devoted to him and his interests that they could dare work and play with mutual pleasure and to mutual advantage. This proved especially true in relation to the manufacture and manipulation of their airplane, and Peggy won well deserved fame for her skill and good sense as an aviator. There were many stumbling-blocks in their terrestrial path, but they soared above them all to ultimate success. -- 1911, Hurst; (year?) Donohue.

The Girl Aviators on Golden Wings -- That there is a peculiar fascination about aviation that wins and holds girl enthusiasts as well as boys is proved by this tale. On golden wings the girl aviators rose for many an exciting flight, and met strange and unexpected experiences -- 1911, Hurst; (year?) Donohue.

The Girl Aviators' Sky Cruise -- To most girls a coaching or yachting trip is an adventure. How much more perilous an adventure a "sky cruise" might be is suggested by the title and proved by the story itself. -- 1911, Hurst;  (year?) Donohue. 

The Girl Aviators' Motor Butterfly -- The delicacy of flight suggested by the word "butterfly," the mechanical power implied by "motor," the ability to control assured by the title "aviator," all combined with the personality and enthusiasm of girls themselves, make this story one for any girl or other reader "to go crazy over." -- Illustrated by Charles Wrenn. 1912, Hurst; 1930, Donohue.
