Blackie & Son Ltd. (1809 -1991)

Blackie and Son Limited was a publishing house in Glasgow, Scotland and in London, England, from 1890 to 1991.

The firm was founded in 1809 by John Blackie, snr. (1782-1874) as a partnership with two others and was originally known as 'Blackie, Fullarton and Company'. It began printing in 1819 and was renamed 'Blackie and Son' in 1831, becoming a public limited company in 1890. The business had quarters at 16/18 William IV Street, Charing Cross, London and 17 Stanhope Street, Glasgow, Scotland, and opened offices in both Canada and India. The company ceased publishing in 1991.

Blackie and Son initially published books sold by subscription, including religious texts and reference books. Later the firm published single volumes, particularly educational texts and children's books, taking advantage of compulsory education from 1870.

In 1902, Walter Blackie commissioned the building of a new house on a plot at Helensburgh to the West of Glasgow. At the invitation of their illustrator Talwin Morris, the architect was his friend Charles Rennie Mackintosh. This house became Hill House, regarded as one of Mackintosh's finest works.

[The contributor, Robert Bailey, has indicated the following "The Crusoe copy is dated 1885 on the title page but I know from the catalog that the book was not put together until 1894 since it lists Henty's Wulf the Saxon as the first title and it was not printed until then."..the catalog to which Mr Bailey refers is printed at the end of the book.]
