This chapter examines publishing in Ireland after Partition, which covers the period 1922–1939. More specifically, it analyses the impact of the violence and political instability that accompanied the War of Independence and the Civil War on publishers and the book trade. It also considers the issue of censorship following the enactment of the Censorship of Publications Act of 1929. Finally, it looks at three companies that played major roles in Irish printing and book production during the period: Talbot Press, Cuala Press, and ‘At the Sign of the Three Candles’ (Three Candles Press).

Keywords:   publishing, Ireland, Partition, publishers, book trade, censorship, printing, book production, Talbot Press, Cuala Press, Three Candles Press
