University of Chicago Press

The University of Chicago Press is one of the world’s great academic publishers, with more than 11,000 books under its belt since the first in 1892.  

Many zoology, biology, ecology, evolutionary biology and general natural history titles are among the roughly 350 books published by the University of Chicago Press each year, without straying from its founding principle of making current scholarship available to both specialist and general readers.

As well as publishing Nobel Prize winners, and books that have become a fixture of academic life, the University of Chicago Press also publishes general works such as Norman Maclean’s A River Runs Through It, an American classic later turned into a film by Robert Redford.  

The first book published under the University of Chicago imprint was Robert F Harper’s Assyrian and Babylonian Letters Belonging to the Kouyunjik Collections of the British Museum. It sold five copies in the first two years.
