Penguin Books, Inc. had their origin in Great Britain. The U.S. publishing house was founded by Ian Ballantine in 1942. The series specialized in literary classics and mysteries. Their cover art was surrealistic with Robert Jonas being their primary artist. The series continued until 1948 (#659) when this publisher became Signet Books. The rarest books in this series are the remaindered copies which had dust-jackets added for resale purposes.
