    A near-comprehensive collection of books published by the Lord John Press. Each is signed by the author, unless otherwise noted. All are limited editions. Those indicated above as being limited to 26 copies are the lettered editions and each one is designated by the letter "B." All volumes are near fine to fine.

    Herb Yellin created the Lord John Press in 1977 and begin publishing first editions by his favorite living authors in autographed, limited editions. The books and broadsides coming out of this Northridge, California operation were soon in demand from discerning book lovers and collectors. The authors ranged from Eudora Welty to Stephen King, from William Gibson to Samuel Beckett. These truly beautiful, artfully designed books serve as a impressive legacy of the diverse and colorful literature in the last quarter of the twentieth century.
