Can't remember details, but there are two series, or three, depending on how
you count. Little Leather Library (red and green cover series) and Little
Blue Books. All roughly the same size. I believe you can find interesting
writeups on Google and/or Wikipedia. Maybe there is a complete list.
Haldeman-Julius published the Little Blue Books. Something of a
left-winger, as I recall. Books were used as premiums in cereal boxes.
Little Leather Library are actually leather, but still very thin.
One of these are sometimes found in special little boxes made to fit a bunch
of maybe 25 volumes.
But the neat thing is that one of them has a connection to Modern Library.
Maybe bought out by Boni? I can't remember, but there is a connection.
Probably your best source is (no surprise) eBay. Buy em by the box. I had
a couple of boxes once. Antique dealers tend to like them, especially in
Here's a LLL website: _http://home.earthlink.net/~littlelibrary/_
P. S. We still have a huge collection of ML in the store. Half price when
you buy 5 or more.

I recently discovered a series of numbered books (pamphlets really,
about 64 pages each) called the Little Blue Books. These guys started
around 1919 and there are around 2,000 titles (more, actually). I
think I'd like to start a collection of these. Anybody know where I
can buy a large lot of these cheap?
Over 50? Thousands of discounts for you
