Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dodd, Mead and Company was a publishing company in New York City. Under several names, the firm operated from 1839 until 1990. In 1839, Moses Woodruff Dodd (1813-1899) and John S. Taylor, at that time a leading publisher in New York, formed the company of "Taylor and Dodd" as a publisher of religious books. In 1840 Dodd bought out Taylor and renamed the company as "M.W. Dodd." In 1870, Dodd's nephew, Edward S. Mead, took over the company and it became "Dodd and Mead." In 1876 Bleecker Van Wagenen became a partner and the name was changed to "Dodd, Mead and Company." In the late 1890s they published the work of new poets including Robert W. Service, Bliss Carman, and Paul Laurence Dunbar. By 1905, the firm had become one of the leading authorities upon and dealers in rare books. In 1910, the firm erected a new building at Fourth Avenue and 30th Street. Edward H. Dodd, the son of Frank Howard Dodd, succeeded him in 1916.show more
