The Obolus Press Publisher of esoteric and previously untranslated books


The Obolus Press specializes in English translations of French and German biography, fiction and history from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

As the name suggests, the publisher hopes to turn a modest profit by ferrying dead authors across the linguistic divide.

From time to time the press will also reprint English language books that have been either neglected or overpriced by competitors.
