Parnassus Signed First Editions Club

Who is the Parnassus First Editions Club for?

Anyone who loves a good book! Our selections are primarily literary fiction with a couple non-fiction selections each year. And since each book you receive as part of your membership is a signed first edition, a membership is perfect for any book collector looking to expand their library! Our selections have gone on to win the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and been on countless bestseller lists. The books you will receive are from an exciting mix of established authors and new literary stars.

What kind of memberships are available?

Members of the Parnassus First Editions Club receive a signed first edition of a book to their doorstep every month of their membership. We offer two ways to be a member: an ongoing monthly membership in which we charge you for your book on the 1st of the month, or a prepaid membership- perfect for gift giving! Prepaid memberships can be purchased for 3, 6, or 12 months

Please note: If you live outside of the United States and would like to join the First Editions Club, please email subscriptions manager Marcia at for a custom shipping quote so you can set up your membership.
