English-language territorial rights

These are the sale of rights to key English-language markets for a British publisher; these may include the United States, Canada, Australasia and South Africa, while for an American publisher there may be a need to place rights for the United Kingdom and Commonwealth markets. The categories of books most eligible for licensing may range from highly illustrated books on topics such as gardening, cookery, handicrafts, art and photography; illustrated and non-illustrated children’s books; biographies and autobiographies; popular reference topics; self-help, health and lifestyle books and fiction; through to business books (professional and popular) and specialized academic and professional books.
