EN: Leypoldt (1835-1884) "a bibliographer, the founder of Library Journal, Publisher's Weekly, Index Medicus and other publications."

" In January, 1866, with Henry Holt, he established the publishing firm of Leypoldt and Holt, permanently moving his residence to New York.[1]
"Most of these publications were continued by his friend Richard Rogers Bowkers after his untimely death in 1883 (Bowker having purchased Publishers Weekly from him in 1878).[1]

In 1960 Henry Holt [45] merged with two other publishers to become Holt, Rinehart & Winston. When the educational division of HR&W was purchased by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich in 1986, the trade publisher's name reverted to Henry Holt. It is currently (as of 2011-11) a division of Macmillan Publishing.

2016-01-20 draft note to Mhhutchins.

Thanks for completing the Pub Series field "Leisure Hour Series". I detest "Series" in a series name but now see that (displayed all caps) on the title page image. From the transcript I surmised "The Leisure Hour series" and deemed that good enough for a Note (so approved), especially a series with one book in the database afaik. How do you check series name-versions that appear in the database; is there a service akin to lookup in directories of Award and Publisher name-versions that are readily available from some ISFDB pages via the left-hand menu?

"Publisher" Tor Books

2016-01-13 Mhhutchins suggests that we should begin to take the Publisher field seriously and use it distinguish imprints, publishers, whatever. Also that we should rely heavily on the title page of a book, perhaps exclusively so where the title page does uniquely identify some imprint/publisher/whatever or combination thereof, or perhaps uniquely in in text (ie, ignoring logos, etc).

Re #8 Encyclopedia of Xanth now in hand:

title page gives some TOR logo above text small caps "A Tom Doherty Associates Book"
copyright page includes all of "published by TOR Books" inline; "First Tor printing: December 1987"; "A Tor Book"; three lines flushleft "Published by Tom Doherty Associates, Inc. // 49 West 24th Street // New York, NY 10010"
back cover: "A Tom Doherty Associates, Inc. Book"
front cover: logo TOR (R)
spine: logo TOR (R) above text "fantasy" --apparently the source for "TOR fantasy" in LC catalog Series field

(c) 1987 Bill Fawcett and Associates
"The names, places, and descriptions and other plot elements used in this game ... used under license and may not be used or reused without Piers Anthony's permission"
First Tor printing: December 1987
Doug Beekman, TCH
25+[225]; [27]; 108 sections in 225 unnumbered pages

confirm all of notes by Willem H and others. why no mention of Tom Doherty Associates, Inc.

A Crossroads Adventure ...
"The Land of Xanth is a magic realm with some mundane roots. [lead sentence]
[... two pages about Anthony's "hopelessly mundane" life in Florida ...] [p3] Many of these things [Xanth flora and fauna] derive from the mundane origins I see around me, while many others, such as the shoe trees that grow all manner of shoes, derive from puns."
perhaps 10 full-page b/w drawings signed "[TCH logo] (c) 1986"

Catalog record LCCN 00-521241 gives "Published/Created: New York : Tom Doherty Associates, 1987." At least 2 of 5 Notes and 4 of 5 Series entries identify or suggest some trademark/name, brandname, moniker --three of which incorporate uppercase TOR, none of which support either Tor Books or TOR Books as a proper noun; only 'Crossroads', 'Crossroads Adventures', and 'Tom Doherty Associates' are capitalized.

Macmillan US ( now portrays Tor Books, Tor/Forge, etc, variously as publishers. See for instance Tor/Forge and Macmillan :: Tor | Forge. But still, too, provides street address Tom Doherty Associates, LLC.

SFE3 calls "Tor Books" a US publishing company from the first entry dated 2005.

From 2014-07-02 the entry states, "Tor is currently part of the Holtzbrinck publishing group, now known as Macmillan Publishers. There is a UK sister imprint, Tor UK."; preceding revision was 2013-11-01

Wiki-EN Tor Books (cf. Tom Doherty) still calls Tor Books (Tor, TOR, Forge, whatever) "the primary imprint of Tom Doherty Associates LLC publishing company, based in New York City"

"White, Stokes, & Allen was a New York-based publishing house that put out highly ornamented books. It was founded in 1883 by Joel Parker White (1857–unknown), Frank Allen, and Frederick Abbot Stokes (1857–1939) and ran until 1887."

Lucile [171]

"Among the several publishers devoting themselves chiefly to publishing handsomely bound and lavishly illustrated editions of standard works was White & Allen. Joel Parker White and Frank Allen were both working for Dodd, Mead in 1880 when they left, taking Frederick B. Stokes with them, to found the house that became White, Stokes & Allen in 1883. This partnership lasted until 1887 when White and Allen established their own firm, starting a London branch at the same time."

New York, of course, continues to be the book capital of North America, though a number of prominent publishers are located outside Manhattan. Greater Boston, for instance, is the home of Houghton Mifflin, Little Brown, Addison-Wesley, David Godine and Harvard University Press, important publishers by any yardstick.
To those numbers you can now add Candlewick Press, an imprint established at 2067 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge less than a year ago. It already has 44 titles in print, all of them beautifully produced children's books.

The Vampyre T94820 --ISFDB as by Dr. John William Polidori 19743

"The Vampyre: A Tale (April 1819 New Monthly Magazine; 1819 chap) as by the Right Honourable Lord Byron. Byron was credited for the story by its publisher for commercial reasons, but denied authorship from the first. Polidori's tale may not be the first Vampire story ever written, but it proved catalytic in forming the model of the tormented Byronic vampire that dominated nineteenth-century renditions of the topos and the legend (see Alexandre Dumas; Charles Nodier; Bram Stoker; for full entries on Vampire Movies and on Vampires, see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy; but see also Clichés)." --SFE3, John Clute
"JP, having been dismissed by Byron in September 1816, then made use of his former employer's sketchy vampire tale, transforming it very substantially into The Vampyre: A Tale (1819 New Monthly Magazine; 1819 chap), both releases being published – whether or not with JP's sanction is uncertain – as by Byron. Byron repudiated the assertion of authorship, but the (correct) assumption that the Lord Ruthven depicted in the latter tale was him was soon universally accepted. The connection was all the more inevitable since JP had taken the name of his vampire antihero from Glenarvon (1816) by Lady Caroline Lamb (1785-1828), a roman à clef whose central villain, Clarence de Ruthven, Lord Glenarvon, was a savage portrait of Byron, her ex-lover. So The Vampyre is important not only for its merits but because it fixed in place, for most of a century, the Underlier motif of the Byronic vampire – the satanic, blanched, world-weary aristocrat whose eyes have a hypnotic effect, especially upon women, and in whom vampirism and seduction are part of the same process (>>> Supernatural Fiction). The languor of the Byronic vampire is a pose: for his energy is infernal. The story traces the growing awareness of the young romantic Aubrey that Ruthven, who fascinates him, is indeed a vampire; unfortunately for Aubrey, this discovery is made through the deaths of his fiancée, his sister and in due course himself. Imitations (> Charles Nodier; James Robinson Planché) led eventually to Alexander Dumas's Le Vampire (performed 1851), which put a final gloss on the Byronic motif." --EoFantasy, John Clute

EN: "Though forgotten and unread today, Knatchbull-Hugessen wrote many well-known short stories of fantasy and faery. He produced a book or two of these stories each year from 1869 to 1894. Some sources on his life, such as Encyclopaedia of Fantasy say 12 such books. Others, such as Oxford Reference, say 15. The collections were popular and commercial successes in the Christmas book market, and his publishers illustrated them with the leading illustrators of their time such as Gustav Doré and Richard Doyle."

Magazine series and publishers

I have added numerous magazine issues to the database and do not recall that completing the Publisher field. I see that it is commonly empty, at least for some famous old US magazines and publishers (Century, Scribner's). We credit a publisher of The Atlantic Monthly primarily for some very early issues published by Ticknor & Fields.
No moderator has mentioned the point (three years experience), so I wonder whether we now have a consensus to leave the field empty.
We handle magazines issues as titles in a (title) series, not as publication series.
Crediting the publisher thus has a big impact on the publisher bibliography "not in a publication series", which thus includes magazine issues. by Ticknor & Fields (1854 to 1868) we have mainly issues of The Atlantic Monthly (1857 to present).

"What most impressed this reviewer -- who, as a member of the Office of Naval Research once had something to do with saucer reports -- is the objectivity shown by both authors ... Both books could have cautioned more against such [children's naive] acceptance."

Both recommended. White for "the excellent over-all historical perspective"; Liss for "intriguing scientific speculations about humanoids, life sources in space and radio contacts with other planets. [and also] what to do and what information to provide if "you see a U.F.O."

56-page Honolulu Advertiser o[354]
review by Dickson Terry, SLPD 1948-09-26 p28: "Francis appears ... as his old friend of army days, Peter Stirling, is about to run for Congress. Francis sees at a glance that his naive huan friend is about to be turned into a dupe and party goat and sets out to turn defeat into victory. He writes Peter's campaign speeches."
NYHT 1948-09-26 pE17, Richard Mealand generally dismisses the work, and concludes, "What remains is a mild bit of whimsy, which tells how Peter Stirling, Dope, was elected to Congress by following the advice of a mule. The advice is honest, sound, and occasionally interesting."
NYT 1948-09-26 pBR26, Rex Lardner is moderately positive "... recording the confabulations and machinations of Francis--for that is the mule's name--and one Peter Stirling, who may be the least competent and most obtuse young man in the history of literature."

IMDb reports "Peter Stirling" as the role played by Donald O'Connor in 1950s comedy films.

Philip Allan

A new publishing house has recently come into begin in England--Messrs. Philip Allan and Company of 5, Quality-court, Chancery-lane, London, W.C.2. The head of the firm, Captain P. B. M. Allan, who has recently been demobilized, is a Master of Arts of Cambridge University, and was formerly subeditor and assistant reader in the house of Smith, Elder and Company, and on the staff of "The Cornhill Magazine". --"The Gossip Shop" The Bookman (New York) 49.6 (Aug 1919) p767(?) of 758ff.

Hayden Church "Literary Gossip from London" Los Angeles Times 1919-08-24 pIII32; (London, -07-26) "London's newest publishing firm ... in a 250-year-old house with a 300-year-old book. ... The book with which it will make its debut is Sir Thomas North's "The Diall of Princes", a translation of a work by the Spaniard, Don Anthony of Guevara, who was perhaps the most widely read author of his day." --"the first in our Scholar's Library"; Allan plans to feature, not exclusively, "a mine of good Elizabethan stuff, mainly translations from the French and Spanish".

  • t.p. verso states "Copyright (c)2018 Black Dog Books, LLC", no location

For the paperback (in the database as from Black Dog Books, P686164), Amazon "Look inside" omits the title page (today, and last week), includes copyright page with statement quoted above.

"Black Dog Books, LLC" holds the copyright (c)2018. --from "Look inside" that omits the title page, 2018-11-01 (From another "Look inside", the Kindle ebook title page/screen names the author, no publisher or location. The print and ebook copyright statements are identical.)

Kindle ed. same as for book 4.


Print books 1 and 3

"Look inside" now omits the title page, shows t.p. verso where Black Dog Books appears in the copyright statement alone, "Copyright (c)2018 Black Dog Books, LLC" (no location). Some information about production services that publishing companies traditionally provide (quote four lines)

  • Edited by Sasha Knight
  • Proofread by Lillie's Literary Services
  • Cover by Gene Mollica
  • Tree of Life medallion drawn by Leah Farrow

The latter data are identical for paperback eds. 1 and 3. The former states "Copyright (c)2017 by Hailey Edwards"

(as "Book 4" correctly; no publisher reported): "Look inside" displays title page/screen that names the work and author only; as above, "Copyright (c)2018 Black Dog Books, LLC".

For Book/Volume 3 in the same series, print and ebook, Amazon "Look inside" is identical in all respects noted here. But Amazon reports both print publisher CreateSpace and ebook Template:ASIN publisher "Publisher: Black Dog Books, LLC (March 30, 2018)".

(ISFDB records show Books 1 and 2 published by the author Hailey Edwards, who is also their stated copyright holder.)

Composed 1915 Redmond-Williams may be the translator of the work introduced (see the English-language novel record).

The essay is published as pp. 11-[19] of the UK and pp. 213-20 of the US edition, identically except for footnotes on the opening page, and the final word. (quotation with modified typography)

[1] How Germany Crushed France, by Adolf Sommerfeldt. 
A translation, edited with a Preface, by L. G. Redmond-Howard.

In the second line of the UK note, LGRH seems to identify himself as the earlier book's translator, editor, and author of a Preface ("Introduction", called "Preface" on the title pages).

[listing] Hindenburg's March into London: Being a Translation from the German Original (London: John Long, 1916) [trans by Louis G Redmond-Howard of the above: hb/]

"Louis G. Redmont" is "Louis G Redmond-Howard" must be "L. G. Redmond-Howard", as he is credited at least for the "Preface" on both title pages.

The 1915 Hodder & Stoughton edition of Hindenburg's is spurious, evidently.

Library records do not clearly credit LGRH as translator but that is correct, probably. Some library records credit Hindenburg --that is, Hindenburg's Einmarsch as Hindenburg's Einmarsch; cf. Andersen's Fairy Tales.

London publisher Everett shows the main title in quotation marks on both half-title and title pages. The front cover wording "Translated ..." and spacing imply that LGRH is the translator, more strongly than the title page. The Preface credited on title page is indeed "Preface", pp. 7-38. Its closing "October, 1914", is the only date.

LGRH cites "the Star of 15th October" on page 11
"Frankriech's Ende" --misspelling casts doubt on someone's knowledge of German, but I don't know that that is LGRH
page 29, "All this I can myself bear out from my own observations while living the life of a German university student, first at Mu"nster in Westphalia, and later on at Bonn on the Rhine, whither I sent to complete my literary and legal studies after Trinity, Dublin, and Lincoln's Inn."
No indications in the preface that its author is the translator.

Earliest coverage of the translated work I find in automated search of numerous contemporary newspapers and magazines today, is a listing of the Everett edition in "Books Published This Week", The Athenaeum 4544 (1914-11-28) p562-65. Viewing all 1914/15 hits for this title, I find no mention of a Hodder & Stoughton.

Probably this publisher/imprint is spurious, from the publisher field of Amazon product pages only. There it may represent publisher Grove Atlantic, Inc. (not itself in the database October 2018), formerly styled "Grove/Atlantic, Inc.", which was established in 1993 by merger of Grove Press and Atlantic Monthly Press. That is, an expansion of "Grove/Atlantic".

Grove Atlantic imprints "include Template:Publisher, Template:Publisher, Template:Publisher, and Template:Publisher" (quoting Wikipedia as of 2018-10-24; supported by the Grove Atlantic website footer, which displays these four names, all under logos).

Probably all publication records as from "Grove Press / Atlantic Monthly Press" are those of books from one of those four Grove Atlantic imprints.

ISFDB title records suggest also that this is a preliminary designation, in the sense "Grove or Atlantic", for works published as by Grove in one country and Atlantic in another, or Grove in one format and Atlantic in another.

publisher Grove Weidenfeld (9; all 1989 to 1991, 0-8021, $)

EN: George Weidenfeld, Baron Weidenfeld [527]

In 1985, Weidenfeld's publishing interests expanded to the United States, when he acquired the Grove Press in partnership with Ann Getty (wife of Gordon Getty). Grove later merged with the New York division of Weidenfeld & Nicolson to form Grove Nicolson. In 1991 Weidenfeld & Nicolson's UK branch was sold to the Orion Publishing Group[3] and became Orion's main non-fiction imprint, with Weidenfeld as non-executive chairman.
In 1993, the American company, Grove Nicolson, merged with the Atlantic Monthly Press to form Grove/Atlantic Inc.

EN: Weidenfeld & Nicolson [528]

Weidenfeld was one of Orion's first acquisitions after the group's founding in 1991, and formed the core of its offerings. At that time Weidenfeld imprints included Phoenix, its own establishment much earlier; and J. M. Dent, acquired in 1988, and thus its Everyman series.
