Born in 1917 in Budapest, Andre Deutsch was one of a group of central European emigres - including George Weidenfeld and Paul Hamlyn - who played an important role in the development of British publishing between the 1950s and the 1980s. In the early 1950s he established Andre Deutsch Ltd which published some of the most important names in post war fiction, including John Updike, V.S.Naipaul, Philip Roth and Norman Mailer. He died in 2000.
The Andre Deutsch Collection consists of the published output of Andre Deutsch Ltd and Allan Wingate (his first company) as well as titles from Deutsch's own personal library (including many signed editions from author friends). There is also a small amount of archival material, including some personal papers and photographs.
The Andre Deutsch publishing archive is held at the McFarlin Library, University of Tulsa.
Andre Deutsch Ltd was acquired by the Carlton Publishing Group. In April 2019 the Welbeck Publishing Group acquired Carlton and all copyright enquiries should be directed to them. Malcolm Edwards is the Group Publisher for Andre Deutsch.
