Archive of Darton & Harvey

William Darton (1755-1819) and Joseph Harvey (1764-1841) went into business together in 1791 publishing a selection of Quaker works.  They also made a specialty of books for children, written by Quakers and others, and by the early 1800s the family firm was the established leader in the field.

The collection contains copyright receipts and agreements covering the period 1791-1847.
