Hardcover with illustrated boards, 16 by 21.5 cm, [i] 185 pp., illus. Near fine, unread copy. A beautiful copy of this surprisingly scarce promo book. From the publisher’s intro: “It is humbling to think that we are part of a publishing house that has been supporting authors for 200 years—through a civil war and two world wars, through severe depressions and recessions, through the industrial age and the digital revolution, and through dramatic increases in literacy that have led to fundamental social and cultural change across the globe. Our story begins with one family in New York in 1817 and another in Glasgow in 1819, printing and publishing for a rapidly changing world. From these humble beginnings, HarperCollins has grown into a global company with more than 4,000 employees in 18 countries, publishing more than 10,000 new books each year in 17 languages, and reaching more than 1 billion readers worldwide. It is impossible to fully capture the magnitude or the breadth of HarperCollins’ endeavors in the publishing industry over its first 200 years. As we explored our rich archives, we uncovered a few stories that demonstrate who we are, what we have achieved, and why we have not only survived but also thrived for the past two centuries. While the stories contained in this book do not present a complete history of the company, they do provide insight into some of the perseverance, key moments, and innovations that built the house of HarperCollins. I welcome you to peruse this book and learn about our contributions to the publishing industry and the global literary world, as well as the work of some of our remarkable authors. HarperCollins’ history is borne out of our love for the written word and is alive each day in the work we do serving our authors.”
