Publisher's Agreements

Scope and Content

The following series comprises three files of agreements made between Harold Blundell and his various publishers. The agreements date from 1941-1974 and relate to editions of his work published both inside and outside of the United Kingdom. The agreements state the terms under which the publisher had purchased the rights to the books written by Blundell, the type of edition and retail price, royalty percentage, and copyright and other legal issues.


The agreements were stored in 3 files according to the country in which the respective publisher's were based, and labelled accordingly. The files have been kept in their original order, and arranged to reflect both the chronological extent of the files as well as the country to which the agreements referred. The first file relates to agreements made for editions of Blundell published in the United Kingdom, the second file contains agreements regarding American editions and the third relates to various European publishing houses for foreign language editions of his work.
