A complete set of the Franklin Library “100 Greatest Books of All Times” (Deluxe Edition), including the companion “Notes from the Editors” booklets for each volume. The books were produced in full leather binding and printed on acid free archival paper. Each leather-bound book is imprinted with 22K gold lettering and an individual design. The page edges were gilt in gold, which helps to protect the paper from humidity damage. Included were silk pictorial end pages and sewn-in silk or satin ribbons as bookmarks.
They were produced from 1974 to 1982, available by subscription, only. They were expensive for the time, and most people never completed the entire set. The titles are too numerous to be listed here, but I am happy to email a copy to interested buyers.
This set is complete and in excellent "near mint" condition. There may be a very minor scuff marks on a few volumes, but nothing that detracts from the beauty of the set. It has been handled with great care.
Shipment will be in multiple boxes, media mail with insurance and delivery confirmation, so please allow approximately 1 week for careful packing.
Free media mail shipping in the continental USA only. Other shipping options available at cost. Pick-up or delivery in the Annapolis area maybe an option. This is a consignment, no discounts are available.
