Princeton University Press

The Princeton University Press is an independent publisher with close connections to Princeton University. Its mission is to disseminate scholarship within academia and society at large.

The press was founded by Whitney Darrow, with the financial support of Charles Scribner, as a printing press to serve the Princeton community in 1905. Its first book was a new 1912 edition of John Witherspoon's "Lectures on Moral Philosophy." [ [http://press.princeton.edu/about_pup/puphist.html A History of Princeton University Press] (2002)]

The Bollingen Series was given to the university in 1969.
