A Few Suggestions to McGraw-Hill Authors

Excerpt from A Few Suggestions to McGraw-Hill Authors: Details of Manuscript Preparation, Typography, Proof-Reading and Other Matters Involved in the Production of Manuscripts and Books The McGraw-Hill Book Company was formed on July 1, 1909, by a consolidation of the book departments of the McGraw Publishing Company and the Hill Publishing Company, then separate publishers of engineering journals and books. For over twenty years, prior to the formation of the McGraw-Hill Book Company, the several journals controlled by Mr. McGraw and Mr. Hill (now published by the McGraw-Hill Company, Inc., a separate organization) had been producing books in their special fields; but the publication of technical books had not been brought to the high standard of technical journals. From the beginning we adopted the slogan. Better Books in Text and Manufacture, It was evident to the men who had brought the leading technical journals of the country from comparative insignificance to positions of influence that there was need of a new technical literature - a literature for classroom and reference which should adequately supplement their periodicals. Our first efforts were largely in the field of engineering, but. presently we set new goals for ourselves. By processes which- seemed natural to us, we have extended our publishing not only into the fields of chemistry, physics, mathematics and English, with a view always of supplying better fundamental textbooks I for students, but also into the fields of agriculture, business administration and economics. Similarly our range of publishing has broadened from the somewhat restricted field of applied science, to include numerous works of high standard dealing with pure science. In all these fields the aim has been, not only to produce a better grade of text and reference book, but to put behind each book a selling organization so competent that the maximum market, both in this country and abroad, would be reached.
