1920's Little Leather Library Book
The Little Leather Library Corporation of New York was the first company to mass-market inexpensive books in the U.S. The corp. was founded in 1916 by Albert Boni, Harry Scherman & Maxwell Sackheim. They made available a wide variety of classics by many Famous authors in miniature editions. They were bound in imitation leather, and the Redcroft edition was published between 1920 and 1924.

When first published, the little books were sold at the Woolworth's chain. By the early '20's, the books were advertised in popular magazines, selling in National Geographic from 1922 to 1924. Sometimes a miniature classic might even appear in a cereal box as a promotion.
