Library of America

The Library of America (LoA) is a nonprofit publisher of classic American literature.

Overview and history

Founded in 1979 with seed money from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Ford Foundation, the LoA has published more than 150 volumes by a wide range of authors from Mark Twain to Philip Roth, Nathaniel Hawthorne to Saul Bellow, including the selected writings of several U.S. presidents.

The "Bibliothèque de la Pléiade" ("La Pléiade") series published in France provided the model for the LoA, which was long a dream of the critic Edmund Wilson.

A co-founder of the LoA was American academic Daniel Aaron.Cromie, William J., Ken Gewertz, Corydon Ireland, and Alvin Powell. [http://www.news.harvard.edu/gazette/2007/06.07/03-honorands.html "Honorary degrees awarded at Commencement’s Morning Exercises,"] "Harvard Gazette". June 7, 2007.]

Another of the founders of the LoA, Jason Epstein, left the organization and expressed doubts about the LoA's continued vitality in his book "Book Business: Publishing Past, Present, and Future" (2001). Epstein wrote that the LoA was not managing its funds well and was beginning to publish some volumes of marginal quality. Epstein also stated that he would have concentrated on online sales from the beginning of the LoA if the Internet had existed in its current form in the 1980s.

The first volumes were published in 1982. Besides the works of many individual writers, the series includes anthologies like "Reporting World War II" and (in a different format to the above illustration) "Writing Los Angeles".

The publisher aims to keep classics in print permanently to preserve America's literary heritage. Although the LoA sells more than a quarter-million volumes annually, the publisher depends on individual contributions to help meet the costs of preparing, marketing and manufacturing its books.

LoA texts are prepared by recognized scholars, and determined efforts are made to correct errors and omissions in previous editions, which are normally listed and the source texts properly identified. For instance, the LoA text of Richard Wright's "Native Son" restored a number of passages that had been previously cut. The books include a chronology of the author's career or significant incidents in the case of the anthology volumes. Technically, the books are designed to be as long-lasting as possible, with acid-free paper, durable binding cloth, and flexible, but firm binding boards.

As of 2006-2007, the Publisher of the Library of America series is Max Rudin; and Geoffrey O'Brien is Editor-in-Chief.
