Vintage Greenleaf Classics Books



Vintage Greenleaf Classics: This on-line checklist is based on an almost complete collection of Greenleaf Classics vintage paperback books. The physical collection is maintained by Bob Speray, with Bruce Brenner, as photographer and cataloger. Find out more about the 30 year history of building the collection and creating the data set - it's a great story over on the History of the Greenleaf Classics Book Collection page.

This is a great new website that has pretty much everything about vintage Greenleaf Classics imprints that you ever wanted to know. It's searchable, too.  And the covers, well, they're great. They're also Not Safe for Work.  Take a look at the site and you might find yourself spending a lot of time there, searching for books your favorite authors wrote under pseudonyms.  I'm not guaranteeing the accuracy of all of them, but it's great fun to try to decide about them.

Can you give me an approximate time era these were printed. This cover suggests 50s or 60s? I'm always looking for 40s collections for my website and novel inspirations :) Thanks.

Mostly late '50s through the '70s.
