Lincoln Schuster opened Simon and Schuster, Publishers, a small, three-room office in New York City. One of Mr. Simons aunts was a crossword puzzle enthusiast, and he had heard her say she wished there was a collection of puzzles she could give to a friend.

Inspired by his aunts remark, Mr. Simon persuaded the editors of The New York Sunday World to create the first book of crossword puzzles. The manuscript was quickly delivered and small announcement ads were placed on the puzzle pages of the World and other papers. Simon and Schuster decided on a modest first printing of 3,500 copies and on publication day, April 10, 1924, bedlam erupted.

Orders poured in at a remarkable rate. By October, when the company was ten months old, it had four books -- all crosswords -- among the top five non-fiction bestsellers.As coeditor, Mr. Hartswick wrote in his Introduction to the book, The crossword solver becomes a collector, a connoisseur of words.

With fascinating and witty clues that reflect the wonderful era in which they were written, The Crossword Puzzle Book offers wordsmiths, history buffs, and collectors alike an elegant keepsake edition that will keep them mentally challenged for generations to come.
