Encyclopedia > Dover Publications

Dover Publications is a book publisher founded in 1941. It publishes primarily reissues, books no longer published by their original publishers—often, but not always, books in the public domain. Many of these books are of particular historical interest or high quality. Dover's policy of inexpensive, durable binding means its books are sold at a low cost. Many college professors prefer to buy books from Dover Publications because they tend to cost $5-$20 unlike textbooks from other companies that cost $50-200. A publisher is a person or entity which engages in the act of publishing. ... This article is about the year. ... The public domain comprises the body of all creative works and other knowledge—writing, artwork, music, science, inventions, and others—in which no person or organization has any proprietary interest. ...


It is well known for its reprints of classic works of literature, classical sheet music and of public-domain images from the 19th century. Dover also publishes an extensive collection of mathematical, scientific and engineering texts as well as numerous books in niche interests such as the history of science or the history of furniture design and wood working.


Dover publishes a specialized line of low-cost literature known as "Dover Thrift Editions", which are generally priced at US$5 or less. They also have several lines of foreign language books.


O'Reilly Media, the computer book publishers, uses line art out of the Dover catalog for their book cover illustrations. Programming Perl is a classic OReilly book. ... It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into Line Art. ...


Probably the worst place to work in the entire world.
