Book Condition and Synopsis:
This beautiful book is in excellent "as new" condition.
These Franklin Library subscription only books were arranged in several different series consisting of 50-100 books each. Customers subscribed to a particular series and received one book per month, as long as their subscription remained current, until the entire series had been delivered.
Thus, it could take over eight years to complete a 100-book set and the sets are never repeated in the same format, which makes them more collectible.
This series is the "Collected Stories of the World's Greatest Writers (leather, 1977-1985) Series" of 100 titles bound in genuine leather with 22k gold accents and issued from 1977-1985. The books were printed on archival paper or acid-free paper to prevent yellowing or tanning.
They were also gold gilt and decorated on the covers and, the edges of the pages of the book were also gilt in gold to protect the paper from damage due to humidity.
From its founding in 1973 until it closed permanently in 2000, the Franklin Library was one of the two largest publishers in the United States of leather bound books. Today, collectors seek after the high quality leather books produced by the Franklin Library.
