Abstract/Description: "Impressed with the obvious quality of Peter Pauper Press publications, the author became interested in discovering the underlying philosophy of the Press, its origin and history, the types of books it publishes, and its contributions to the book world. Because the Peter Pauper Press is so personal a publishing house, it is not possible to write its history without writing also of Peter and Edna Beilenson, who publish, print, and design the Peter Pauper books"--Introduction.
