The H. W. Hagemann Publishing Company, 114 Fifth Avenue, New York, will make a special feature of works of fiction and children’s books. It has in preparation a line of juveniles which it thinks will be unsurpassed. H. W. Hagemann, president of the company, has been in the book business for twenty years, first with D. Appleton & Co., later with Chas. Scribner’s Sons, and more recently with the Worthington Company. --- The American Stationer (New York) 36: 1 (July 5, 1894), Whole No. 993, page 16.

New York City. – The sheriff, on October 26, put a keeper in the place of business of the H.W. Hagemann Publishing Company, at No. 114 Fifth Avenue, on an attachment for $3322 in favor of J. J. Little & Co., for balance due for printing. The attachment was obtained on the ground that the firm is a New Jersey concern. It was incorporated in May last with a capital stock of $10,000. --- The Publishers’ Weekly 46:1188 (Nov. 3, 1894) page 699

New York City. – The suit and attachment of J. J. Little & Co., against the H. W. Hagemann Publishing Company, has been dismissed. The legal proceedings were instituted with the approval of one-half the stockholders of the company in order to bring about a settlement of internal dissensions. This has been accomplished, and the company is continuing business at No. 114 5th Ave. without change in management except that H. W. Hagemann has retired, having disposed of his stock to the remaining shareholders. --- The Publishers’ Weekly 46: 1189 (Nov. 10, 1894), page 731

Mr. H. W. Hagemann, who recently severed his connections with the Hagemann Publishing Co, has established himself in the book business under his own name at 160 Fifth Avenue. He will deal in standard and rare books, and pay special attention to importing English and other foreign books. Mr. Hagemann in making this change returns to a field in which he has numerous friends, and in which he has in times past enjoyed considerable success, which, we trust, will attend him in the future. The suit and attachment of J.J. Little & Co., against the H. W. Haggemann Publishing Company, has been dismissed. The legal proceedings were instituted with the approval of one-half of the stockholders of the company in order to bring about a settlement of internal dissensions. This has been accomplished, and the company is continuing business at 114 Fifth Avenue without change in the management except that H.W. Hagemann has retired, having disposed of his stock to the remaining shareholders. – The American Newsman 11: 11 (November 1894), page 33.
