About Us

Our objective

Welcome to the Leopold Classic Library website. Leopold Classic Library is a division of the Leopold Publications, an Australian-based group whose objective is to bring a vast collection of classical books to readers around the world. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to a vast reservoir of books, many of which are significant literary works that deserve to be brought back into print after many decades.

Our collection

Most of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. Our catalogue of titles is available in a number of languages, and the range of topics covered is broad: from genealogy to geology; regions to religions; and literature to legislature. By visiting the Leopold Classic Library website you can search by category, key words, or author to find what you are looking for.

A commitment to quality

The contents of the vast majority of titles in Leopold Classic Library's catalogue have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff. This means that we have checked every single page in every title, making it highly unlikely that any material imperfections – such as poor picture quality, blurred or missing text - remain. When our staff observe such imperfections in the original work, these are either repaired, or the title has been excluded from the Leopold Classic Library catalogue. At least two people, and sometimes three, have reviewed every book that we offer for publication.

Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work.

Engagement with our readers

We want to engage with our readers in order to better serve their needs. That's why we urge you to 'Join the Pride' at Leopold Classic Library, and complete the survey that indicates your range of interests to us. This would enable us to tailor our titles to your requirements, and alert you to new titles that we think would be likely to interest you. If you wish, you can also provide us with your suggestions about subjects or titles you think we should be offering, including those in languages other than English.
