The carte-de-visite has considerable printed text on the verso, where "further particulars" are given about the book's availability: "See book entitled 'Beyond the Lines, or a Yankee Prisoner Loose in Dixie,' published by J.

Methodist, Boston Liberator, Cincinnati Commercial, and other leading papers have noticed it as the most thrilling narrative yet published. Persons wishing single copies can have them sent to their address, postage paid, by sending $1.00 to Rev. J. J. Geer, Springfield, Ohio." The last line notes: "A liberal discount to agents."
