From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent and Co. Ltd. was a British publishing company based in London. The company was founded as Crosby and Co. by Benjamin Crosby. William Simpkin and Richard Marshall were Crosby's assistants. Upon Crosby's illness in 1814, the company name changed to Simpkin and Marshall. In 1890-1891 the firm expanded and became Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent and Company.
The company was trade agent for J. W. Arrowsmith and The Psychic Press which both published Arthur Conan Doyle's novels and essays between 1892 and 1929.
