The Limited Editions Club was founded in 1929 by George Macy with the intent of publishing beautifully illustrated and designed classic literature for a relatively small number of subscribers. Much of the LEC's fame stems from its use of some of the best illustrators and artists available. Each title was uniquely designed with individualized paper and cover materials. The Limited Editions Club was created to publish finely illustrated and designed books. Many of the books contain original printed etchings, lithographs, engravings, etc. from famous contemporary artists.
