(Redirected to E. P. Dutton article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

E. P. Dutton is an American book publishing company founded as a book retailer in Boston, Massachusetts in 1852 by Edward Payson Dutton. Dutton Children's Books is one of the oldest continually operating children's book publishers in the United States. Formerly an independent publisher, it was acquired by Penguin Group in 1986, under which it continues to operate as an imprint.

History

In 1864, Dutton expanded to New York City where they began publishing religious books. In 1906, Dutton struck what proved to be a significant deal with the English publishing company of J. M. Dent to be the American distributor of the Everyman's Library series of classic literature reprints. John Macrae joined the company in 1885 as an office boy and in 1923 was named president. In 1928, the publishing and retail divisions were split into two separate businesses with Macrae acquiring the publishing side, operating as E. P. Dutton and Company, Inc. For the next fifty-eight years, E. P. Dutton was one of the leading independent publishers in the United States, putting out works by writers such as John Hunt, Marshall Mathers, Cleveland Amory, Milton Glaser, Francoise Sagan, Lawrence Durrell, Luigi Pirandello, John Irving, Joyce Carol Oates, Peter Matthiessen, Gavin Maxwell, Gail Sheehy, Ruth Manning-Sanders, La Toya Jackson, Julia Smith and Mickey Spillane.
