Jonathan Cape

Jonathan Cape

Jonathan Cape was a British publisher founded in 1919 as Jonathan Page and Company; the name was changed in 1921, and it took over the back list of A. C. Fifield. From that point on it was a major force in British publishing, notably of books by T. E. Lawrence, Arthur Ransome, the latter Roald Dahl books, Malcolm Lowry's Under the Volcano and the James Bond series by Ian Fleming. A defensive merger with Chatto and Windus was carried out in 1969; later Bodley Head and Virago Press were added to the group, before becoming an imprint of Random House in 1987.
