Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter gives an overview of concepts of subsequent chapters covered in the book Publishing Policies and 
 Family Strategies. The main objective is to discover how the publishing firm of Blussé was organised and the kind of books it published. The economic success of the Blussé family clearly emerges from the archival material. He had revamped his archive by destroying most of his business records, accidentally saving only one page of his confraternity book by using it to wrap up a bundle of his father's occasional poems. The book is devoted to the founder of the publishing company, Abraham Blussé, Pieter's father. The book focuses on Pieter Blussé by shedding light on his personal life and political career, as well as his career as a publisher. The book deals not only on their respective roles within the firm but also on their upbringing and formal education.

Keywords: Abraham Blussé; family archive; Pieter Blussé; publishing firm
