Franklin Library

History

Since 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 the high quality leather produced by the Franklin Library books sought by collectors. The books were arranged in a number of series, consisting of 50-100 books each. Customers subscribed to a particular series and received a book each month as long as their subscription was current until the entire series had been delivered. Thus, more than eight years on a book set 100 as the 100 Greatest Books ever written, complete series.

Today, the books can only be acquired on the secondary market. The eBay community is one of the largest online auction sites where collectors are able to buy and sell Franklin Library books, both individually and in batches. Most Titles are also easy to obtain ABEbooks, Amazon and similar sites, or from booksellers and bookstores specializing in antiquarian and collectible books.

Although most of the Franklin Library collections were published in full leather straps (like $ 45 to $ 28 per book), some were also published simultaneously in alternative binders such as "leather" – also called "leather" or leather ($ 19 per book). Like the best-bound books, these especially a better bound books printed on archival paper or acid free paper to prevent yellowing or tanning. They were gold plated and decorated on the covers and the edges of the pages of the book were also plated the paper into gold to protect against damage from humidity. Other books were isued quarter bound in leather ($ 9 per book) – consisting of a "coated fabric" cover with a leather spine, such as the Franklin Mystery Series.

Some of their earlier, smaller collections were bound in "leather bound" (made of leather strips and scraps). This has given rise to a myth that Franklin-bound books in a different doctrine somehow inferior in publishing standards (such as Easton Press). While Some Franklin books are not actually covered with real leather, they are still considered a high level of publishing quality retention.

Of course, the vast majority of their finer collections were bound in the highest degree of publishing ties like real leather, silk pictorial end pages and edges ribbons attached to a bookmark (such as Easton Press). As a cost saving measure, Franklin Library Press Moir went in satin or marbled end sheets and satin ribbons in her autographed first editions series.

In addition to the cost of the book, subscribers were expected to pay shipping and handling charges as well as sales taxes. As time went on, after subscribers were asked to pay higher prices.

First editions

Many publishers in the publishing world, including the original publisher of a book published "Limited first editions" of certain books, especially those of popular authors or books that were of particular importance because Award nominations, movie listings, and reviews. Consequently, they represent a different category of books compared to the typical "trade" edition books.

This "Limited first editions "were published in a limited edition (about 100 to 1000 or even more) and they were issued a specific instruction to set them apart put them through a special honors, including a special bond, a slipcase, hand numbered, a signature of the author or a combination (or all) of the above. Many of these 'special' editions were published simultaneously with the "trade" editions or were sometimes made later.

Some small press publishers actually bought the pages of the original publisher and placed them in a special bond of their own design, she had signed by the author, and she numbered.

Others, such as Easton Press, do their own printing, including using special paper, and they let the "limited first edition" of one year or more after the 'trade' edition is that publish dome thing had a claim of a true "First Edition" somewhat doubtful.

In the case of the Franklin Library, it was their policy to contract for printing Rights "First Edition" with both the author and the first mass-market publishers, so the Franklin Library edition a "true first-edition trade edition" this was before published. "This is something that greatly added to the value of their books. To emphasize this difference or distinction, the Franklin Library" trade " editions carried a statement of "First trade edtion" on the copyright page and had a disclaimer stating that "A first edition of this book signed is privately printed by the Franklin Library Press. "So this statement acknowledges that the" First Edition "published by the Franklin Library Press was indeed the first edition of the book and truly and accurately described as a "first edition."

A question often asked is: What is the difference between the "First Edition "and" Signed First Edition "? The difference lies in the fact that a" first edition "signed an introduction which was contained in printed The book, which is a "Print" from the signature, but not a 'real' or authentic or personal signature in ink by hand. The "First signed edition "series, something Franklin Library Press began doing in 1983, consisted of a hand-signed authentic and" real "signature made by the author for that special book, usually on a separate page which was then bound in the book. A separate and loosely put tissue paper or onion-skin was placed on the printed page protection.

The series

Due to overlapping range of themes, the same title appears in more than one series, but usually designed with a different binding. Much of the book collections were issued by the Franklin Library "open" or "trade" editions, so no expense figures available are.
