B.T. Batsford Ltd.

Currently, B.T. Batsford is an imprint of Pavilion Books, a publishing company headquartered in London with a specialty in illustrated books. Founded in 1843, Batsford has a reputation in the subjects of fashion and design, embroidery and textiles, British heritage, and architecture. As part of this reputation, the publishing house hosts an annual competition for students of applied and fine arts called the Batsford Prize. In the 1950s, Dumbarton Oaks made purchases for the Garden Library from Batsford catalogs.
