Mikhail Mikhailov (Meller; 1897-1938), the head of the Russian State Publishing House of Agricultural Literature, wrote this book after his trip to the United States. He was one of the first Soviet publishing workers to visit the USA.
Some chapters are devoted to magazine publishing, exemplified by Curtis Publishing Company in Philadelphia; newspaper publishing, exemplified by The New York Times; and book publishing through Macmillan Publishers and McGraw Hill. Other chapters explore the organization of the printing process at McCall Printing, the distribution of periodicals, and advertising.
Mikhailov was executed during the Great Purge.

OCLC locates four copies of this edition: in the Library of Congress, the University of Chicago Library, the New York Public Library and the Bavarian State Library.
