The Franklin Library was one of the largest and most sought-after publishers of fine leather-bound books from 1973 until their permanent closure in 2000. Franklin Library Limited First Editions are true limited first printings, and are some of the rarest and most sought-after leather-bound books. A Franklin Library First or Signed Edition represents the highest quality in fine binding with elaborately designed premium leather covers, hubbed spines, 22kt gilt stamping, sometimes even custom-designed slipcases, and in the case of Signed Editions; hand-numbered authenticity certificates, and original Author signatures.
These photos represent some of the Signed and First Editions we have in stock or have previously procured for clients.
Among our many specialties, Juniper Books is one of the largest buyers and sellers of fine leather-bound books from publishers like Franklin Library and Easton Press in the world. We buy and sell nearly all of these beautiful leather bound volumes privately, so it is best to communicate with us directly about selling your collection or buying these books from us. Our inventory of leather-bound volumes changes rapidly yet we keep “want lists” for customers and we have helped our clients build collections over years.
Modern leather-bound books make marvelous gifts and we have more experience than anyone in assisting clients with selection and sourcing; from a single book to a curated collection of thousands. And, as these books are collectibles that appreciate in value over time, we are also very experienced in evaluating and appraising these volumes and we quite often advise clients on appropriate prices to pay for these books as many times they are overpriced in certain venues.
