Volume 2 covers the expansion of the firm to 1861 and the death of the second William Blackwood.Margaret Oliphant (18281897) is best known as the author of nearly one hundred novels but also wrote short stories and biographies. Closely connected with Blackwoods of Edinburgh from 1851 shortly before her death she was commissioned to write a history of the publishing firm by director William Blackwood grandson of the founder. From small beginnings the firm had rapidly become the leading Scottish publishing house dominating the literary world particularly through Blackwoods Edinburgh Magazine and an impressive list of famous authors. These included Thomas de Quincey Walter Scott and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The Magazine introduced the convention of having novels issued in serial form before publication as a book which became standard practice for authors such as Dickens Thackeray and Eliot. Volume 2 continues to 1861 and the death of the second William Blackwood and includes landmarks such as the opening of a London branch and George Eliots first novels.12. Publications: 13.
