For over half a century, Landmark Books have been an important part of children’s libraries. Hailed as the first historical series for kids, Landmark Books show us where we’ve been and where we’re going. And educators continue to trust the Landmark name and engage their students with the timeless biographies in the series.
Landmarks were originally published by Random House in the fifties and early sixties. They were published in two series: the American books with 122 titles, and the World Landmarks with 63. Since then, Random House has kept the name alive, adding other titles (some originally from the "Step-Up" books) and reprinting some of the most popular titles. Sterling Publishing has more recently published the "Sterling Point" books, many of which are Landmark reprints. Other publishers have quietly reprinted a landmark or two, sometimes with new titles. We are attempting to locate all of these in-print and make them available, because we believe the Landmark series is one of the best collection of children's histories ever written.
Writers in the Landmark series include such notable authors as:

NOTE: This list links to all of the reprinted books we carry. We also often have a number of original editions of the Landmark books, usually priced from about $8-$15 each (though some can be much pricier!). On hand supply varies.
