1. Bradbury and Evans (Wikipedia). "Bradbury and Evans (est.1830) was an English printing and publishing business founded by William Bradbury (1799-1869) and Frederick Mullett Evans (1804-1870) in London....For the first ten years Bradbury & Evans were printers, then added publishing in 1841 after they purchased Punch magazine. As printers they did work for Joseph Paxton, Edward Moxon and Chapman and Hall (publishers of Charles Dickens). Dickens left Chapman and Hall in 1844 and Bradbury and Evans became his new publisher. Bradbury and Evans published William Makepeace Thackeray's Vanity Fair in 1847 (as a serial), as well as most of his longer fiction. The firm operated from offices at no.11 Bouverie Street, no.85 Fleet Street, and no.4-14 Lombard Street, London (now Lombard Lane)." (Submitted on December 7, 2017.)
