Roy Publishers focused largely on translations of Polish writers beginning in the 1940s.
Roy Publishers was a New York-based publishing house that focused largely on translations of Polish writers into English. Its founder, Marian Kister (1897-1958), left Poland during World War II and came to New York in 1941. Having previously been a publisher in Warsaw under the company name Rój, he and his wife Hanna started their publishing work shortly after settling in New York.
