PUBLISHER: Lovell, Coryell & Company, New York, 1892-1897

ABOUT: Founded at 43-47 East Tenth Street in 1892 by John Wurtele Lovell and Vincent M. Coryell.... Subsidiary of United States Book Company .... Having moved in May 1893 to the offices of the United States Book Company at 5-7 East Sixteenth Street, Lovell, Coryell and Company was forced to move again in February 1894 upon the bankruptcy of the parent company.... In 1897 Lovell, Coryell and Company was renamed Coryell and Company and taken over by the American Publishers Cororation.

The Lovell, Coryell Co. was founded by Mr. [Johm] Lovell with the idea of publishing well made books. The company was not to handle paper books, but was to issue its publications in cloth or leather. [J. M. Barrie's] An Edinburgh Eleven is a good example of what was turned out and compares favorably with modern trade issues. [B. D. Cutler, Sir James Barrie: A Bibliogaphy 1931, p41].
