Abstract/Description: "In consideration of the foregoing advice from a recognized leader in the field of librarianship, it behooves librarians now in service, as well as those about to enter the profession, to acquaint themselves with some of the lesser known publishing houses in America. The present study is undertaken with such a view. It is hoped that it may serve, not only to fill one of the lacunae in professional literature, but to stimulate similar pursuits in other areas as well, and in so doing, contribute a minor share to the advancement of library service. The subject of the study is The Caxton Printers, Ltd., of Caldwell, Idaho. It would appear, from a search of library literature, that no analytical study has been made of this house. It is felt, therefore, that the choice is particularly appropriate. The study has the following objectives: (1) an examination of the origin and history, as well as the governing philosophy of the firm; (2) an examination of the output with a view toward determining the quality, quantity, subject matter, and potential value to the library"--Introduction.
