Harper and Brothers

In March 1817 John and James Harper founded Harper Brothers, a small printing firm in New York. In 1825 their brothers, Joseph and Fletcher, joined the company. In 1833 the company name was changed to Harper and Brothers.

The company soon became the largest book publisher in the United States, publishing both fiction and non fiction. Their authors included Herman Melville, Charles Dickens, William Thackeray, Mark Twain and Henry James.

Early in their career Harper and Brothers began to publish maps and atlases, using well established engravers, such as Alexander G. Findlay (not to be confused with Anthony Finley).

Their success as book publishers encouraged them to launch their own magazine, Harper's Monthly , in 1850. In 1857 the magazine became Harper's Weekly.
