Books from the Limited Editions Club imprint are highly collectible. Founded by George Macy in 1929, the LEC prints limited runs of fine new editions of classic literature illustrated by contemporary artists. All LEC books are numbered and signed by the illustrator. LEC books are adored by veteran and neophyte collectors alike, and we humbly suggest perusing the remainder of our catalog for similar offerings. Our catalog has many mid-century LEC volumes (most numbered 1261) from the library of a fastidious collector who kept his collection in fine, unread condition until his passing. Very good / very good. Item #99
