"The Derrydale Press was a small publisher of finely crafted sporting books featuring topics such as hunting, fishing, sailing, skiing, polo, tennis and horseback riding. The press was started by Eugene V. Connett, III in 1927 and between then and 1942, The Derrydale Press published 169 books, 30 of which were privately printed. The mission of The Derrydale Press was 'to create works of the highest quality for the enjoyment of contemporary sportsmen and their descendants'" (Cleveland Public Library online).
