Limited Editions Club
N.O.B.S. Forums 
Thursday, August 21, 7pm

The Limited Editions Club commissioned famous artists to illustrate old classics, and then issued them on top-quality paper and printing and in beautiful bindings.  All were numbered and signed by the illustrator (sometimes by the book designer), and available only by subscription.  Begun in 1929, the club soon earned a devoted following, and has since become quite desirable amongst collectors.  But they're all different, and there is a range of quality and rarity in the LEC history.  Presentation by Jack Belcher, longtime NOBS member and LEC collector.   $3 suggested donation.
