Franklin Library Heirloom Series

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.  The Franklin Library Heirloom Series was produced to fill a lower-price niche and were quarter-bound meaning that the spines were covered in leather (for an identical shelf presentation look to the more expensive full leather bindings) and the covers (boards) were cloth covered.

These photos represent some of the Franklin Library Heirloom Series volumes 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 changes rapidly yet we keep “want lists” for customers and we have helped our clients build their collections over years.

Modern leather-bound books make marvelous gifts and we have more experience than anyone in assisting our 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.
