Bradbury and Evans (est.1830) was an English printer and publisher founded by William Bradbury and Frederick Mullet Evans.[1][2] For the first ten years they were printers, then added publishing in 1841 after they purchased Punch magazine.[1][2] As printers they did work for Edward Moxon and Chapman and Hall (publishers of Charles Dickens).[1] Dickens left Chapman and Hall in 1844 and Bradbury and Evans became his new publisher.[1] 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).[1] Bradbury and Evans published Thackery's Vanity Fair in 1847 (as a serial), as well as most of his longer fiction.[1][2]
