Thompson and Thomas, Chicago

Thompson and Thomas published a number of the Abbott histories in the early 1900's. It is uncertain how many Abbott histories this firm published but it appears that it followed a typical pattern. Several of the publishers (Lupton, Federal) only published five of the histories. Since I have only seen these five listed in advertisements, as of this time I am assuming that this is the case with Thompson and Thomas.

Alexander the Great - Jacob Abbott
Josephine -John S. C. Abbott
Julius Caesar -Jacob Abbott
Marie Antoinette -John S. C. Abbott
Mary, Queen of Scots -Jacob Abbott

Not much is known of this publishing house. It appears that they were at 267 Wabash from the late 1890's until about 1903 when they moved to 338 Wabash (Chicago). This firm was succeeded by Charles C. Thompson in 1908.
