British Book Trade Archives

1830 - 1939

A location register.

The aim of this site is to facilitate the research of book historians through listing the known locations of the archives of British publishers, printers, booksellers and stationers active in the period 1830-1939.
Other book trade archives have also been included namely literary agents and bookbinders but these are by no means comprehensive. A supplementary section has been added which lists archives of the book trade in Dublin during this period.

We would welcome notice of corrections and additions, please make them via the web form.

British Book Trade Archives 1830-1939: A location Register, Alexis Weedon and Michael Bott was first published in print by History of the Book on Demand Series, March 1996.

A revised list for the web was produced by Alexis Weedon, University of Bedfordshire, in 2001.
