Welcome to Collecting the Modern Library, the most complete published source available anywhere for information, discussion, and leads on all aspects of collecting books published with the Modern Library imprint from 1917 through 1996. This website is brought to you through the courtesy of its financial and content contributors. Your active participation is earnestly solicited.
New collectors might begin by reading the articles Getting Started: A Gentle Introduction to Modern Library Collecting, and History of the Modern Library. Next you might browse The Modern Library FAQ.
To look at the personal side of collecting—what's in visitors' collections, books they recommend, what they're reading now—and to add your own bookish information, see the Amenities section.
Be sure to join the free non-commercial Modern Library e-Mail Discussion Group.
