History

Fleeing the Nazis in 1941, Pantheon founder Jacques Schiffrin arrived in New York with little money but a rich experience in publishing. Schiffrin had founded "Edicions de la Pleiade" in France after World War One, publishing affordable, but classic, literature. Forced to leave France during the Nazi occupation, he left for New York city and founded Pantheon Books in 1942. Not surprisingly, Pantheon's focussed on publishing titles related to the French Resistance! Pantheon grew to gain a reputation for publishing thought-provoking, and sometimes cutting- edge, works, from such authors as Simone de Beauvoir, C.G.Jung, and albert Camus. In 1961, Pantheon Books was purchased by Random House. Today, Pantheon offers a wide range of titles, including comic reprints (Graphic Novels), and many of its award- winning titles focus more on Fantasy than Science Fiction.
