Franklin Library Collected Stories of the World’s Greatest Writers

The Franklin Library leather bound collection: Collected Stories of the World’s Greatest Writers consists of 100 volumes of leather bound titles, and was published by the Franklin Press from 1977 to 1985. All title in the Collected Stories of the World’s Greatest Writers series are bound in genuine leather with 22k gold accents, gilt page edges, and include a sewn-in bookmark.

In the Collected Stories of the World’s Greatest Writers, the Franklin Press collected some true treasures of literature, including Sherlock Holmes adventures, H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds, and Gulliver’s Travels. These gorgeously crafted books are a treasure to the senses — the look and feel of these leather bound volumes is something that gives book lovers a thrill.

As Franklin Library closed in 2000, all titles in the Collected Stories of the World’s Greatest Writers series are out of print and only available from secondary aftermarket sources, primarily collectible booksellers (usually very costly), and direct sales such as ebay.
