Publisher Information

Blackie & Son Ltd


The firm was founded in 1809 by John Blackie, snr. (1782-1874) as a partnership with two others and was originally known as 'Blackie, Fullerton and Company'. It began printing in 1819 and was renamed 'Blackie and Son' in 1831. It became a public limited company in 1890. They had premises at 16/18 William IV Street Charing Cross London and 17 Stanhope Street Glasgow. They also had premises in Canada and India. Blackie and Son initially published books sold by subscription, including religious texts and reference books, but later published single volumes, particularly educational texts and children's books, taking advantage of compulsory education from 1870. Some notable books were from The Kennett Library, a graded series of classics retold for schools including Kidnapped, Little Women,Westward Ho!,The Black Arrow, Wuthering Heights and Ben Hur. The company ceased publishing in 1991.
