New York. Dodd, Mead and Company was the final successor
to several earlier 19th century publishers. Taylor and Dodd (1839-1840)
gave way to M.W. Dodd (1840-1870) and finally to Dodd and Mead from
1870 to 1876 when the final iteration -Dodd, Mead and Company came into
being. This New York publisher has been a major player in the
publishing world for more than a century. Literature, biography and
fiction have been a mainstay. Children's books have not been a
significant product although it did publish Martha Finley's Elsie books
and a number of Jacob Abbott's Series.
Tom Brown's School Days appeared in its Bookman's Classics Series in 1900.
