History

 

The Capital Publishing Co. was founded sometime in the 1940s. The earliest record I could find was from 1947. They lasted until the 1970s and after that I see no mention of them. It is unclear if they closed or were bought out. They seem to have been a small publishing house and that included several art sets with crayons.
