Editorial Molino was established in 1932 in Barcelona by Pablo del Molino Mateus, who was born in 1900 and would die in 1968. The publisher would take the very name of Mr. Pablo began his own publishing activities Biblioteca Oro collection, which in turn would become the first major publishing success thanks to the three lines of collections that followed: detective fiction, stories of west and swashbuckling adventures. Among the authors of these novels can be found very important feathers like Kart May, Jules Verne, Emilio Salgari or Agatha Christie.
In 1935 the publisher released the first adventures of Guillermo Brown, british character, with the volumes entitled "Las travesuras de Guillermo" and "Los apuros de Guillermo". This character would be quite popular among young readers and became known as Guillermo el Travieso (not to be confused with Daniel el Travieso).
Only four years after its founding, the fledgling publisher would live another sweet moment with the regular publication of the journal Mickey, with whom achieved gathering more than 55,000 members, a fact that was not bad in a country almost surrounded by civil war.
And speaking of the Spanish Civil War, as in many other similar cases that any proposed war paralyzed from the publisher and Pablo del Molino himself was exiled in Argentina since 1938, settling in the city of Buenos Aires while her own brother Luis del Molino continued in Barcelona in front of the publisher.
Some years later, in 1952 specifically, Pablo del Molino returned to Barcelona leaving the facilities set up in Buenos Aires, since the political situation of the time and the constant strikes that were convened were seriously jeopardize the continuation of the company. Upon his return, and thanks to the work he learned in Argentina (remember that at that time the country was much more advanced than Spain in editorial matters), our protagonist renewed many aspects of its editorial. One such decision was to modernize the Biblioteca Oro Collection initiating the publication of Selecciones Biblioteca Oro Collection, becoming the world-famous author Agatha Christie in one of the leading firms in the collection.
Throughout its long history, Editorial Molino published about ten thousand different titles, highlighting as an example the Hercule Poirot novels, juvenile story books Enid Blyton or volumes of Alfred Hitchcock and the three investigators.
In 1988, the firm publishes the first four books in the series of gamebooks Way of the Tiger: Avenger, Assassin, Usurper and Great Lord. However, the limited success due to its low diffusion prevented the Spanish readers enjoy the last two books in the series.
When Mr. Pablo del Molino died in 1968 succeeded him in office his own son, who guided the publisher even more youth and children to read. Finally in 2004 the publisher is part of the editorial RBA, a bid editorial group.
