Michael Joseph (publisher)
Michael Joseph (26 September 1897 – 15 March 1958) was a British publisher and writer.
After a period as a literary agent for Curtis Brown, Joseph founded his own publishing imprint in 1935 as a subsidiary of Victor Gollancz Ltd. Their relations were not always smooth; Joseph bought out Victor Gollancz in 1938 after Gollancz attempted to censor Sir Philip Gibbs's Across the Frontiers on political grounds. Among the authors Joseph published were H. E. Bates, C. S. Forester, Monica Dickens, Richard Llewellyn, Joyce Cary, Richard Gordon and Vita Sackville-West.
