The Reprint Company Publishers

New Bern, North Carolina, United States

The Reprint Company Publishers dates its origins to the mid-1950s when my father, who was editor of the local Spartanburg SC Journal, an afternoon newspaper, became involved with the serialized publication of John B.O. Landrum's History of Spartanburg County in the paper. He then issued that as a hardback book in 1959. Over the next ten years, he published about thirty reprints. I became publisher in 1970 and began moving it from a hobby-business to a fulltime occupation.In the early 1970s, I was contacted by the North Carolina Library Association concerning a list of out-of-print North Carolina titles which they felt should be reprinted. Jointly we developed a project which allowed all of the books to be published. Over the next fifteen years, I worked with library associations throughout the South and published reprint editions of approximately three hundred books.From that time to the present, I have been involved in the publication of over six hundred titles with the areas of specialization remaining local and regional history, scholarly material, and genealogical source material for the Southeastern area.The vast majority of our books are hardback and are printed on a long-life paper with a neutral pH factor. We are using Print on Demand technology to bring the better of our backlist titles back into print. Those titles are listed as Print on Demand and are printed upon receipt of an order and ship directly from the bindery within three to ten business days.
