BiographyHistory

In 1928 Cape ventured into the USA book market; in order to retain American rights he established a new publishing house. Harcourt Brace's chief editor Harrison Smith invested money and joined Cape in 1929. The Wall Street crash, Smith's lack of business experience and the partners' inability to work "well together" did not bode well ; Smith left in 1931.
