Re: [BKARTS] Franklin Printing Office & Bindery in Philadelphia



Did this printing office and bindery do the Franklin Library?  I haven't
been able to find out what happened to the series of modern first editions
which was marketed by the Franklin Mint. Does anyone out there know?

actually cared what they were doing and was
interested.  They even gave me some of their trim
paper.  I say, if you live in the area, go for it!
