Books have been collected since the advent of print, sought after for their craftsmanship and beauty as much as for the knowledge they contained. First editions are valued as the form in which the world first received a great work of literature or a revolutionary idea. In service to the idea of the value of the printed book, Greenlight Bookstore launched our First Editions Club in January 2013.  (Click here for a letter on the occasion of the launch.)

Greenlight Bookstore selects one new title each month for our First Editions Club, based on literary merit, potential collectability, and readability. FEC subscribers receive a carefully packaged first edition/first printing copy of the book, autographed by the author. Our selection committee draws on years of book industry experience in choosing titles; three of our 2013 selections were later nominated for the National Book Award.

Greenlight’s First Editions Club is a great way to keep up with what’s significant and new in the world of books, whether you are a collector or just a passionate reader. And a subscription makes a magnificent gift for the bibliophile in your life. Purchase a subscription on the website or in the bookstore to begin your collection.
