The S.W. Green's Son publishing firm is virtually unknown. In the 1870's it printed the Publisher's Weekly as well as a number of books for Lee and Shepard. It stopped publishing in 1883 when it was taken over by the Chas. M. Green Printing Company. Previously in 1879 S. W. Green became S.W. Green's Son when Green sold his interest in the firm to H. A. Burr.
