Hide Profile

Founded in 1905 with a gift from Charles Scribner (Princeton Class of 1875), the Press was incorporated in 1910 as a non-profit corporation "to establish, maintain, and operate a printing and publishing plant, for the promotion of education and scholarship, and to serve the University by manufacturing and distributing its publications." The Press has published almost 3,000 titles since its first book, John Witherspoon's LECTURES IN MORAL PHILOSOPHY, appeared in 1912. Among its long-term projects have been THE PAPERS OF THOMAS JEFFERSON, edited by Julian P. Boyd, and THE PAPERS OF WOODROW WILSON, edited by Arthur S. Link.
