Collection Description

Biographical Note

Edward W. Titus (1870-1952), publisher and founder of the Black Manikin Press. A Polish-born American citizen, he set up a bookshop in Paris in 1924 called At the Sign of the Black Manikin, which became a gathering place for expatriate writers. He had married cosmetics businesswoman Helena Rubeinstein in 1908 and profits from her business subsidized the Black Manikin. Titus began publishing books under the imprint Black Manikin Press in 1926, including a version of Lady Chatterley's Lover in 1929. Titus also assumed ownership and editorship of the magazine This Quarter in 1929. Both the press and the magazine were short-lived and ended in 1932. The press had published twenty-five books by this time. His marriage to Rubinstein ended in 1937. They had two sons, Roy (born in 1909) and Horace (1909-1958).
