Dutton Everyman Paperback Catalog
(1957 - 1961)

In 1957 Dutton released a series of paperbacks under the Dutton Everyman Paperback label, which is a predecessor to the Everyman's Library paperback series.  A few of the titles, such as Manzoni's Betrothed, were already in the Everyman's Library catalog, but most were new titles.  Terry Seymour described the selections best, calling them eclectic.  Seventy-nine were issued before Dent and Dutton launched the Everyman's Library paperback series in 1961.  When this occurred, Dutton dropped the "Everyman" term, labeling the existing and new titles with "A Dutton Paperback."  Existing cover images remained the same, except for the removal of "Everyman," and even the Dutton Everyman Paperback logo was retained on the spine and back cover.  The Dutton Paperback series existed for a very long time, with the series number reaching well over 400.

Each title was identified by a "D" followed by a unique number.  This series number appears on the lower spine and front cover.  The back cover includes the logo at the top, a description of the book, and an attribution for the cover design.  A few titles (D51, D59, and D77) are designated as a Dutton Everyman Original.

The complete list of titles released as a Dutton Everyman Paperback is shown below. If a title is highlighted, an image is available for that title. In many cases, the Dutton Paperback image is displayed as we do not yet have an image of the Dutton Everyman Paperback cover.  If the Everyman version of the cover is found please send it to the editor.  Leading articles (A, An, and The) have been removed from titles.
