Bancroft Press

In the interest of promoting books AND local businesses, here's some excellent info about a relatively new Baltimore-based publishing company.


Bancroft Press

Based in Baltimore, Maryland, Bancroft Press is a general interest book publisher that seeks to produce high quality works of fiction and nonfiction. By conscious choice, our writers have been, are, and will continue to be "in-the-trenches" journalists and other professionals -- authorities who know and present their stories and subjects better than anyone in the country.

Established in 1995

Bancroft Press operates under the slogan books that enlighten. It has published nearly two dozen books, from a TV thriller, a Hollywood novel, young adult fiction, and adult mysteries to non-fiction books ranging from humor, health, and cultural criticism, to history, business, art, and personal investment.


Publishers Weekly called Bancroft Press small but enterprising, Bancroft Press has received plaudits from syndicated columnist Liz Smith, who calls Bancroft up and coming, and a special honor from book publishing guru John Kremer who in 1998 designated Bancroft "one of the top 101 independent book publishers in the U.S." based on design, content, selection, marketing, volume, and sales.

As of June 2005, five of Bancroft’s books have been sold to mass market paperback, seven to book clubs, four to the movies and television, four to a foreign publisher, three to audio book publishers, and two to serial sales. In just the Young Adult area, it has published one Alex Award winner, one Edgar finalist, and one book garnering a Booklist starred review.
