Signature Books are a series produced under the general editorship of Enid Lamonte Meadowcroft and published during the 1950s and 60s. This series provides easy to read, exciting (and factual) stories based upon the lives of historical figures. Though written simply enough for young readers, they make interesting reading for boys and girls well into their teens.
The 51 Signature Books originally published are out of print, but we believe that they offer better quality reading than many series of today, and are worth finding, collecting, preserving and—most of all—reading. They could be compared to the U.S. and World Landmarks published by Random House, Childhood of Famous Americans by Bobs-Merrill, and the We Were There series, also from Grosset & Dunlap.
