Bradbury and Evans
Bradbury and Evans (est.1830) was an English printer and publisher founded by William Bradbury and Frederick Mullet Evans. For the first ten years they were printers, then added publishing in 1841 after they purchased Punch magazine. As printers they did work for Edward Moxon and Chapman and Hall (publishers of Charles Dickens). Dickens left Chapman and Hall in 1844 and Bradbury and Evans became his new publisher. After Bradbury and Evans broke with Dickens in 1859, they founded the illustrated literary magazine Once A Week, which competed with Dickens' new All The Year Round (formally Household Words). Bradbury and Evans published Thackery's Vanity Fair in 1847 (as a serial), as well as most of his longer fiction.
