Who is Cambridge Archive Editions?

Cambridge Archive Editions is the new name for the business formerly known as Archive Editions, a small, specialist publisher of primary source documents established 20 years ago. Cambridge University Press formally acquired Archive Editions in August 2008, and will take over the distribution of all existing titles and new publishing from early October.

This acquisition is highly significant for the development of both print and electronic reference and archival publishing at Cambridge University Press.
