Grant Richards

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

Grant Richards was a British publishing company based in London founded by Franklin Thomas Grant Richards (1872-1948) in 1897 at 9 Henrietta Street, Covent Garden, London. Richards’s move in 1902 into larger London offices at 48 Leicester Square led, in April 1905, to bankruptcy. He reorganized the firm, adding to his imprint the initial of his wife’s name (trading as E. Grant Richards), and moved later that year to smaller offices at 7 Carlton Street. In 1908, the firm reverted to Richards's name and moved to 8 St. Martin's Street. Richards entered into bankruptcy for the second time in 1926, and the firm was renamed the Richards Press.

Between 1899 and 1904, the company published 1 novel and 1 chapter of Hilda Wade written by Arthur Conan Doyle.
