PENGUIN ENGLISH LIBRARY




THIS PAGE 'EL' EL1 - EL66





This series was brought together by the re-organising of Penguin lists in the early-mid 1960's. The idea was to group together new and scholarly editions of literary classics of the nineteenth century and earlier, quite a number of which had already been issued in the Penguin main series. It commenced in September 1965 with the publication of EL1 Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë - which was first published as Penguin 524 in March 1946. Most titles were later subsumed into the Penguin Classics 'L' series.
