Founded in 1961 Time-Life Books became the book division of Time Inc. It took its name from Time Inc.'s cornerstone publications, Time magazine and Life magazine, but remained independent of both. Time-Life Books gained notoriety as a publisher of quality educational series books. Operating as a book club each series was sold in installments that would be mailed to households monthly. Several of these book series garnered substantial critical acclaim utilizing authors well known throughout the world. Time-Life no longer publishes books today closing it's book division in 2003. Although Time-Life Books are no longer in print they remain collectible to many throughout the United States and Europe. Because these sets were sold individually on a monthly basis many sets were not completed making the last books in the series harder to come by increasing their value. Please find below our collection of Time-Life Books our list is a work in progress and does not reflect our total collection. If there are books that you are interested in that are not shown or you have information that you would like to share please contact us.
