Notes:
Also known as Consolidated Book Publishers. It is possible that Humor Publishing was in fact a subsidiary of Consolidated, through which the latter published comic books.

According to the memoir of Jerry Siegel (who solicited Superman to Consolidated in 1933), the President of Consolidated Book Publishers was Stanley H. Livingston.
The Federal Trade Commission Decisions Volume 14, published in 1931, goes on to say that R.W. Smith Jr was Vice President, and C. I. Ingve was Treasurer-Secretary. The FTC went on the report that Consolidated Book Publishers was Incorporated in Illinois in 1922. The FDC felt it was a subsidiary of the Cuneo Press and part of the John F. Cuneo group of publishing and printing companies.

Their address in 1929 2242 Grove Street, Chicago. Mr Livingston, the President, lived at 4400 Greenwood Avenue. From 1930 to 1933, their address was 537 South Dearborn St in Chicago.

They are known to have published books until the 1950s.
