|Content Description||Victor Gollancz Ltd was a major London-based publishing house of the twentieth century. Founded in 1927 or 1928 by Victor Gollancz (1893–1967), it published literature, nonfiction and popular fiction, including science fiction. It was Colin Wilson's first publisher. |
Ownership passed to Victor Gollancz's daughter, Livia Gollancz, after his death. She sold it to Houghton Mifflin in 1989, by which time the company had ceased to represent Colin Wilson.
The publishing files here relate to a number of Wilson's early books, although the file for 'The Outsider' is missing. They primarily contain a substantial quantity of correspondence, but also other papers such as contracts, agreements and reviews. The files are organised by book with letters filed chronologically, which reflects the original order in which they were received.
