A short history on the titles.

  Over the years the Folio Society has produced a number of bibliographies,the first one in 1968 being the Folio 21 celebrating 21 years of publications of very fine books,this culminated in 2006 with the Folio 60 which collectors could order in 2006 from the Folio Society reading room in London. The volume Folio 60 is dated London 2007 FOLIO 60 endeavours to cover all the many reprints and variations.

 The Folio 60 volume gives a bibliographic details of the following:Number of Pages,Binder,Paper Used,Illustrator and Number of editions this will also record reprint numbers.This Folio volume is a must for all Folio Society collectors. This edition Folio 60 was a major achievment the Society has always been meticulous in detailing a year of publication,there have been many questions asked about publication years either a first Folio run or a reprint the Folio 60 covers all. 

 

 COPY FOLIO 60 MUST HAVE

 

. Zamora bookshop has been collecting Folio Society books for a number of years.I personally joined the Society in 1996 and over that time collected 300 copies of vastly differing subjects,this was one of the reasons for my going forward into setting up a Folio book shop and  exchange. 

 

 

 

It may well be the case of the buyer of one of the books displayed on this web site, has never encountered a Folio Volume in the past and it is for this reason i will try and explain. 

The production of Folio books depends on a lot of skills and talents,not just the authors and illustrators. The finished article must look well,read well and last well. The ability to judge a book by the method of production has always been important. The choice of type, printer ,  paper, binding, illustrator etc,the Folio Society have always got this right. In the short time i have collected Folio Books, i have had good feed back from many sources.
