C. Arthur Pearson Ltd. was a British publishing company based in London founded by Sir Cyril Arthur Pearson (1866-1921). In 1890, after six years working for Newnes, Pearson left to form his own publishing business and within three weeks had created the periodical journal Pearson's Weekly, the first issue of which sold a quarter of a million copies. In 1898, he purchased the Morning Herald, and in 1900 merged it into his new creation, the halfpenny Daily Express and by 1904 had purchased the Standard.
