Publisher Information

Burns Oates and Washbourne


Comprising over 6000 titles, this collection consists of the file-copy library maintained by the prominent English Catholic publishing house which was official publisher in England to the Holy See. Publication dates range from 1848 to the 1950's. Founded in 1848 in London by James Burns (1808-1871) a Glasgow educated son of a Presbyterian minister who converted to Catholicism in 1845, the press published John Henry Newman's religious novel Loss and Gain as its first work. It became Burns and Lambert, then Burns, Lambert and Oates and then Burns, Oates, and Washbourne before returning to Burns and Oates. Wilfrid Meynell and his son Francis, who founded the Nonesuch Press, were associated with the press, as was the important typographer and historian of printing, Stanley Morison.
