The Theory of Evolution
Welcome to the Evolution Publishing homepage. We are a small press
founded in 1994 and based in Merchantville, NJ. Nearby,
William Penn signed his famous treaty with Tamanend of the Lenape,
General George Washington made his daring Christmas Eve crossing of the
Delaware, and just across the river in Philadelphia, a young Benjamin
Franklin published his Pennsylvania Gazette and Poor Richard's Almanac.
We are proud to be part of the American publishing
heritage, and feel honored to share this heritage with our neighbors
around the country and the world.
The old school of bookbinding is alive and well at Evolution
Publishing. Using a combination of ultra-modern and traditional
bookbinding techniques, we are able to offer high-quality specialty
volumes at reasonable
prices. We believe that books are not ephemera: they should be designed
to last. Our primary source books are manufactured to be a durable
fixture of library and private collections
for time periods measured in decades, not years.
In addition to a list of our products, our webpage contains free
internet resources for Italic and American language studies. We intend
to maintain these pages as an on-line research station, with basic
background information on the fields in which we publish. Should you
find yourself needing to know more, we have a growing catalog of
products to satisfy your curiosity. And if we don't publish what you're
looking for, you can probably find it in our on-line
bookstore which contains lists of highly useful books for
American language studies.
