The original Everyman's Library ran to 1000 volumes. An unofficial but accurate looking list can be found here.
In 1991 a new series of Everyman's Library was started and is currently in the 300s. An unofficial list of those can be found here.
I've moved everything I could find out of the regular series into the publishers series field. There are also regular series entries for Everyman's Library Pocket Poets and Everyman's Library Children's Classics. I don't know anything about those.
As I was deleting data from regular series I checked whether the volume was in the new series. If so, I put it there and confirmed the volume number. If not I put it in the old series without confirming numbers.
I've also made a small start on entering the new series from the beginning.
I did some work today on this Everyman's Library Publisher's Series - I added entries for the original volumes in my collection and added series numbers for a few of the others.
There's some overlap between the works in the original and the new series, with the new series volumes being assigned new numbers. That's why some works will now have entries for both series.
I've been dropping them as I find them in the editions section of each book, but I've not checked on the list if they belong. (Been doing this sporadically since Publisher's Series came into being.)
Not really paid attention to new series or old either. :/
I finished entering the New Series up to the last volume for which I have a number. So if you have an Everyman's book that doesn't have a publishers series entry or that has a different number it's probably the old series.
The old series was published by J.M. Dent and the new series is published by Alfred A. Knopf.
