A marvelous compendium of all things Everyman’s Library including extensive scans from Everyman’s series books over the nearly 80 years of its life can be found at Collecting Everyman’s Library. Also check out Everyman’s Library Amenities for more EL history and collecting information.

Terry Seymour’s A Guide to Collecting Everyman’s Library (2005) and his A Printing History of Everyman’s Library 1906-1982 (2011) are indispensable for anyone who wants to understand the scope of Everyman’s Library. Detailed documentation of all titles in the series, sales figures and dates in print, along with bindings and other series details.

I will eventually add an overview of the series to this page.
