Landmark Books (Random House Paperback Reprints)

29 Total Books

This series is a combination of reprints from both the Landmark Series and the Step-Up Books series.

Starting in the early 1980's, Random House began to select titles from the Landmark series for reprinting. Over the years, they continued to reprint these titles, updating the cover photos as they went. In addition, while many are unabridged and unedited, a few titles were edited. We have done our best to notate the changes we have found.

Six titles were added to this reprint series which were not actually part of the original Landmark series, but rather were from the Step-Up Book series. This can be a bit confusing! Those titles are:

  • Meet Abraham Lincoln
  • Meet Benjamin Franklin
  • Meet Christopher Columbus
  • Meet George Washington
  • Meet Martin Luther King Jr.
  • Meet Thomas Jefferson
