George Routledge and Co., London
George Routledge started his publishing firm in 1843. In 1851,
Frederick Warne became a partner with his brother-in-law G. Routledge.
The firm then became Routledge and Co. The firm's name changed in 1858
to reflect Routledge's son's entry into partnership. The new publishing
house was Routledge, Warne and Routledge. In 1865 Warne left to form
his own company and the old firm was renamed George Routledge and Sons.
This house published two sets of Jacob Abbott books.
