APA Standard Covers

Depicted here are the covers of the Standards.  You will notice there are a few missing pictures – these are rare items and will be added as pictures become available.  Should you have one of the missing ones, please notify us.

Occasionally you will find Standards with a different colored binding. There are three main reasons for this.

1) The book has been rebound, keep in mind some of these are now 125 years old.

2) The copy you have is a presentation copy. These were usually given to the Presidents of the APA and other major contributors.

3) This is the most common reason.  When a printing would sell out, a new printing would be ordered.  Because there were no changes in the text, it was not considered a new edition.
