The Lutterworth Press was founded as the Religious Tract Society in Georgian London, with its headquarters just off Fleet Street, in order to provide improving literature for young people and adults. Since then it has published many tens of thousands of titles, ranging from small pamphlets for children to erudite academic works.

The Lutterworth Press was the first British publishing house to have branches in Africa and Asia, and part of the publishing programme in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries was the publication of language dictionaries and other works in many indigenous languages.

The Lutterworth Press became well known to generations of British children because of its publication of the Boy's Own Paper and the Girl's Own Paper.

The Lutterworth Press remains committed to high-quality publishing for children and adults, with a particular emphasis on moral values. In an age in which most long-established publishers have been absorbed into faceless multinational groups, it also remains committed to editorial independence.

We publish books in the following areas:

Our current printed catalogues are also available to download in PDF format:

This will allow you to logon to both web sites using the same password, and to combine purchases from both catalogues in a single order.
