Little, Brown & Co

Little, Brown and Company is the US publishing firm established in 1837 by Charles Coffin Little and James Brown. In 1898 Little, Brown and Co purchased Roberts Brothers and thus ‘inherited’ all their titles, including those of a number of Schreiner’s books. This precipitated the publishing dispute between Schreiner, Roberts Brothers and Little, Brown and Co which erupted in 1899-1900 around the intended publication of her Stray Thoughts on South Africa, and also the rights to her other publications. 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.  Stray Thoughts was in the event and largely as a consequence never published, with a related version appearing posthumously as Thoughts on South Africa.
