History

What publishers choose to focus on can change how readers see the world. Over the last 70 years, anyone interested in Japan must have encountered more than a few books from Tuttle Publishing, and learnt from them. Tuttle's story stretches back to printer Richard Tottel of Fleet Street, London, who first published Thomas Moores ' Utopia, and compiled the first English poetry anthology, Songes and Sonettes. Also known as Tottels Miscellany, it includes many poems by Lord Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey, who popularized English sonnet. The New World was deeply fascinating for Elizabethan England; few generations later, one of Tottels ' descendants crossed the Atlantic to America. The Tuttle Publishing dynasty known today originates with George Albert Tuttle, who in 1832 established the printing house Tuttle Co. In Rutland, Vermont. In 1856, he purchased the weekly Rutland Herald, which became the daily newspaper when the Civil War began in 1861. George's grandson Charles Egbert Tuttle Sr. Carry on the family tradition as noted antiquarian, stocking 750 categories of Rare Books and gathering the world's largest collection of American race relations; Tuttles ran four other printing businesses in Rutland. Charles E. Tuttle Jr. He studied history and literature at Harvard, working for a year in Columbia University Department of Rare Books before partnering in his father's company. Pearl Harbor, December 1941, prompted his enlistment in the US Army. Assign to a chemical warfare unit, he island - hop Pacific to Japan, where as Army captain in 1945 he joined the Civil Information and Education Section of General MacArthur GHQ in Tokyo, researching Japanese newspapers, magazines and radio. Sections mission was dissemination of democratic ideals and principles, advising on and implementing policies relating to public information, education, religion, and other sociological and cultural problems of Japan. When his father die, in 1943, Charles Tuttle Jr. Inherit Company, capably managed by Jane Wright during his absence. However, he soon saw ways to engage with post - War circumstances in Japan. Importing and popularizing American literature fit with GHQ policy objectives, plus there was huge demand for books from home among US troops stationed in occupied Japan. Conversely, Charles could supply Rare Books from Japan to the American market. In addition, he realized the vast potential for books in English introducing unique aspects of Japan. I became interested in Japanese history and culture and was surprised at the lack of printed material. In the years immediately preceding World War II, there were virtually no undergraduate courses in any American colleges devoted even in small part to the history and culture of Asia. It seemed there was a need and growing interest that would justify publishing in this field. Others in the book trade, unconvinced, predict Tuttles Books to Span East and West would not last even a year. Undeterred, returning to civilian life in 1948, he opened the Tokyo branch of Charles E. Tuttle Co., Importing and exporting textbooks.

Current status

Chinese, proud of their cultural heritage, have had mixed results sharing it in global book markets. A small publisher with roots in Vermont, founded more than seven decades ago, is still finding success in its niche of introducing readers in the US and elsewhere to some Asian traditions. Some of keys of its staying power: editorial focus, localized content, ties with still - growing independent bookstores and business discipline. Charles E. Tuttle Publishing, now known as Tuttle Publishing, was founded in 1948 by Charles Tuttle, Harvard graduate who hailed from Rutland, Vermont, and whose family had been in the book trade since 1832. Station in Japan after World War II, young Vermonter was asked by General Douglas MacArthur to import books for American troops to read. He expanded business by introducing English - language books about Japanese culture. People find out about new things, Brandy LaMotte, Tuttles product manager, said in a recent interview at the company's US headquarters near Rutland, Vermont. The company sums up its mission with the slogan, Books to span East and West. Charles discovered that interest in Japanese culture among Americans was strong even after World War II end. Early - era Tuttle Books mostly focus on Japan; those still in print include Japanese Childrens Favorite Stories, Book of Tea and Rashomon and Other Stories. In 1951, he married Reiko Chiba, Japanese native, extending his ties to Asia beyond business and into family life. Publishers Asia - related content broadened greatly after Charles died in 1993. Tuttles ' wife, in 1996, sold the company to his second cousin, Eric Oey, now a 64 - year - old Chinese - American who attended the University of California at Berkeley and, at the time, had his own publishing business focus on travel books. Tuttle Publishing today is part of Oeys Singapore - headquartered Periplus Publishing Group. Among its China - theme Books: All About China: Stories, Songs, Crafts and Games for Kids and Etiquette Guide to China: Know Rules that Make a Difference! Aside from Publishing, Periplus is one of Southeast Asia's largest book retailers. Oey spends about one month every year in the US, in June. Tuttle currently has more than 1 600 titles in print, along with 1 800 E - Books. Its subjects span cooking, style, travel, language and martial arts. About 90% of sales are print books - mostly from its backlist - and the rest are E - Books. Companies starting in 2011 take look at a lot of older books published in the 1960s and scan them all into E - Books, aiming for a new generation of readers. Tuttle keeps older titles relevant in today's world in part by updating covers and working to present high - quality book design. If we were focused online, we would only care about the front of book, say LaMotte. Look at book is feel youre going to get when you reading a book. We do publish anything in only E - Book form, though there are some exceptions for Japanese authors. Each of our E - Books have been in print at one time.
