This volume documents the most successful period of this important publishing house with reproductions of book covers, advertisements and most importantly correspondence between the publishers and their famous clients, who included Theodore Dreiser, Eugene ONeil, Ezra Pound and William Faulkner. Following his introductory chapters on the companys development, Egleston (U. of Colorado, Boulder) reviews the firms relationships with 22 representative authors. These sections provide a close-up of publishing in the early 20th century, as well as a glimpse of some of the worlds most revered authors consumed in the pedestrian business of selling their work.
