Early Pelicans


After Allen Lane had successfully established 'Penguin Books' he turned his attention to non-fiction subjects. He was already thinking about current affairs and contemporary political and social issues - which evolved into the Penguin Special Series.

'When the first Pelicans were published the intention behind them was to provide the serious general reader with authoritative books on a wide range of intellectual interests. There was at the time no deliberate design of building a library of modern knowledge at a modest cost. Nevertheless, Pelicans have, in fact, become such a library: and one serving, moreover, not only the general reader of serious purpose, but also the great body of students pursuing courses in the Universities and institutions of higher education generally.' (The Penguin Story, 1956)

The early Pelicans were reprints of authoritative works in science, history, archaeology, politics and literature. They were eventually followed by specially commissioned volumes such as Ballet by Arnold Haskell, A Short History of English Literature by Sir Ifor Evans, Thinking to Some Purpose by Professor Susan Stebbing
