I have never had this one before - take a look at that gilding! This is part of the 100 Greatest works of American Literature. Solid and well made, this is full leather, and very ornate. It is extremely rare - very few are on the market. This has all the best of the bookbinders craft. It is very fine - absolutely magnificent. You can't go wrong with this at almost any price. They don't make these anymore. Good luck in your bidding!

This is the top-of-line, highest quality Franklin edition you can buy. You can only get these on the secondary market, for the Franklin Library isn't publishing anymore.
