Bell and Daldy

RA Collection: People and Organisations

George Bell & Sons was founded by George Bell as an educational bookseller in 1839. In 1854, he acquired J. & J.J. Deighton, a bookseller's outfit in Cambridge, which thereupon changed its name to Deighton, Bell & Co. Then, in 1856, Bell brought on board as a partner Frederick Daldy, and renamed the company Bell & Daldy. With Daldy, Bell began to print more poetry collections, including the Aldine Edition of British Poets and the works of Andrew Lang and Robert Bridges. Daldy left the firm (renamed George Bell & Sons) in 1873, to join the firm of Virtue, Spalding, & Daldy.
