LEATHERBOUND CLASSICS Preferred Bindings

The premium full-leather titles listed under the Franklin Library heading below have become, for their matchless quality of production, 'Franklin preferred' to the Easton Press or Folio Society 'premier press' bindings. If a familiar 'classic' title is not listed under the Franklin heading, it is likely because an alternate offering by Easton or Folio has since become the obvious 'consumer choice.' These exceptions aside, however, the earliest Franklin titles (1974 ~ 1987) represent, at least for this discriminating collector of finely crafted books, the 'final word' in bookbinding.* Franklin Mint ~ in one brief, shining moment of publishing history ~ was able to produce in astonishing breadth and array, elegance, beauty, and unsurpassed quality of production, a formidable library of what have since become the definitive 'Rolls Royce' creations among leatherbound books, setting a very high standard indeed ~ one which, it is safe to say, will never again be so brilliantly or so broadly achieved.
* Invariably after 1987, as Franklin's star waned and an inferior product replaced the 'pure gold' that had gone before, Easton Press was the unrivaled leader in fine book publishing. Sadly, by the
end of the 80s, Franklin's light had irrevocably diminished because of an inferior product. With the birth of a new millennium it had vanished forever.

A Franklin book of 'first ranking', below, is marked by the italicized 'edition series' name to which it belongs listed immediately after its bolded title, followed by suggested printing-press 'ties' or citations of 'honorable mention.' Where no 'tie' or 'honorable mention' occurs, it is to be understood that the Franklin Mint creation ~ whether a stunning gold-stamped, image-embossed 'Oxford/Franklin' masterpiece, a highly coveted 'Signed 60' title, or even that more elusive wonder, the 'Patrons Edition' ~ is (far and away IMHO) the finest leather-bound tradition to have ever issued from the nation's top publishing houses. Where there is a 'tie', almost invariably I opt for the Franklin edition. A few examples of Franklin's later faux-leather ('leatherette') and quarter-bound editions, for reasons of unique style and design, are included in the list below (a nod to Franklin's vast production scope and variety). Their inclusion is not to be taken as suggestion that these replace their 'first ranking' full-leather counterparts (absurd, of course), but rather as acknowledgment that, even with these clearly inferior incarnations of its later bookbinding years, Franklin was able to maintain a modicum of class and style that deserves honorable mention. 'Oxford/Franklin' = Oxford University's incomparable* Oxford Library of the World's Great Books series (1981-85), produced by Franklin Mint. 'Signed 60' = Franklin Mint's ultimate 60 Signed Limited Edition series (1977-82) of sixty honored production-elite titles personally flat-signed by their illustrious authors. 'Patrons Edition' = Franklin Mint's limited Deluxe Patrons Edition ~ a particularly luxurious 'numbered' full-leather collectors issue, showcasing full-color cover artwork illustration, in a beautifully constructed matching buckram slipcase. TIE = quality of Easton Press or Folio Society publication materials and/or design comparable to that of Franklin Mint for the same title. * While Franklin's Great Books of the Western World series (1978-85) is indeed, for its scope and content, a most admirable and well-crafted collection, it suffers somewhat aesthetically, in style and design, with the exception of a few select titles (listed below).

That each title be allowed its own 'character' is particularly appropriate for a Dickens collection. Interestingly, in 1981, Oxford/Franklin published a wholly separate edition from its imminent OLCD creation, uniquely designed, of Dickens' Great Expectations. Still brandishing Oxford's elegant inner-board ticking (gilt stamping), this alternate edition contributes very nicely indeed to a more eclectic collectors approach to building a unique Dickens library. To that end it is fortunate that Easton Press, beyond its own 'complete works' collections, also has made available a variety of differing special editions (from within its Famous Editions collection) of individual Dickens titles (see the Easton Press 'Dickens' section below). This holds true also for Easton's most recent offering of The Complete Works of Ernest Hemingway, another uniform collection, the

individual titles of which, for diversity and color in appearance, might be acquired from the wide array of Franklin and Easton editions produced over the years.

But if one's library space is small and one's budget shoestring (the rising norm everywhere it seems) alternatives are always welcome. Though not of Franklin or Easton quality, Barnes & Noble and Dalmation Press each produce growing libraries of handsome bonded-leather works that carry with them both spacial and financial economies. Some of these ~ for example, B&N's The Iliad & the Odyssey, The Yale Shakespeare, The Vampire Chronicles, Gray's Anatomy, The Complete Sherlock Holmes, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Wicked / Son of a Witch, or Dalmation's The Jungle Books, The Lost World, and Around the World In Eighty Days ~ when they are set beside bona fide leather creations look right at home and offer, in their own right, a splash of diversity and color to one's library, be it ever so humble.
