Art Publication Society

cover 1923



The Art Publication Society was founded in 1912 in Saint Louis. The same year, the publishing house had a contest for original compositions for the piano. The publishing house was known for the comprehensive teaching books called The Progressive Series, in which works such as this one by Tchaikovsky were published with biographical notes and practice advice. One series was for music theory and the other was for piano. The other main publication for which the firm was known was the complete works of Leopold Godowsky. The company went out of business sometime in the 1980's.
