Notes

Pocket Books produced the first mass-market, pocket-sized paperback books in America in early 1939 and revolutionized the publishing industry.

In 1939, with Robert Fair de Graff, Simon & Schuster founded Pocket Books, America's first paperback publisher. In 1944, the company was sold to Marshall Field III, owner of the Chicago Sun newspaper. Following his death in 1957, Leon Shimkin, a Simon & Schuster partner, and James M. Jacobson bought Pocket Books. In 1966, Max Schuster retired and sold his half of Simon & Schuster to Leon Shimkin. Shimkin then merged Simon & Schuster with Pocket Books.
