Created in 1827, Editions Perrin has, from its beginnings, catered to a readership of history lovers, researchers and teachers. An initial specialty was the publication of the speeches of the Académie Française and early works included those of : Tolstoy, Augustin Thierry, François Mauriac and René Grousset.

Today, Perrin is the leading history publisher in France – with a catalogue featuring chronicles and biographies, general syntheses and monographs, memoirs and essays. It offers both highly accessible and more demanding historical works.

The paperback collection "Tempus" was created in 2002 and counts more than 500 titles, it is a rich illustration of Perrin’s editorial span and can be said to constitute the history lover’s ideal library
