Publishing for Everyman

Wilson Library, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Library acquired the Dent Collection in 1991. Nearly 6,400 file and proof copy volumes, catalogs, and periodicals as well as illustrative and other production materials from the Collection are located in the Rare Book Collection with the company's business records and archives housed in the Manuscripts Department.

Disclaimer from the Orion Publishing Group, Ltd.: "Titles are still being published under the imprint of J. M. Dent, which is now part of the Orion Publishing Group. Dent have asked us to make it clear that they have no archive as such, only a file copy library and contracts files, so they can only deal with limited bibliographical enquiries."
