Roberts Brothers (1857-1898) was a bookbinding and publishing firm based in Boston, USA. Roberts Brothers was prominent as publishers of women’s writing and became especially well-known after it published Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women in 1868. Roberts Brothers published a number of Schreiner’s writings in the US and was negotiating with her regarding the publication of her Stray Thoughts on South Africa, when the firm was bought out in 1898 by Little, Brown and Company. This precipitated the publishing dispute between Schreiner, Roberts Brothers and Little, Brown & Co which erupted in 1899-1900. The details of this dispute can be traced across Schreiner’s letters to both publishers, their replies to her, and also her letters to Hudson Findlay.
