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. 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. Cover of the edition of the works of C.F. Ramuz in Bibliothèque de la Pléiade The Bibliothèque de la Pléiade is a prestigious French collection of books which has been created in the thirties by Gallimard under the impulsion of André Gide. ... Edmund Wilson (May 8, 1895 – June 12, 1972) was an American writer, noted chiefly for his literary criticism. ...


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. Richard Nathaniel Wright (September 4, 1908 – November 28, 1960) was an American author of novels, short stories and non-fiction. ... Native Son (1940) is a novel by African-American author Richard Wright. ... Acid-free paper is paper that has a neutral or basic pH (7 or greater), although paper having a pH between 6 and 7 is often also considered acid-free. ... Old book binding and cover Bookbinding is the process of physically assembling a book from a number of separate or bifoliate sheets of paper or other material. ...


One 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. Jason Epstein is a key figure in the popularisation of the trade paperback. ... Online means being connected to the Internet or another similar electronic network, like a bulletin board system. ...


As of 2006-2007, the senior editor/publisher of the Library of America series is Max Rudin.
