BiographyHistory

Previously in partnership with John Lane in the Bodley Head, Charles Elkin Mathews began publishing as Elkin Mathews in 1887. The firm, which was also an antiquarian bookseller, published the work of many of the poets who were to influence the shape of modern poetry, such as W. B. Yeats, James Joyce, Robert Bridges, John Masefield and Ezra Pound. Innovative in design and format, Mathews issued booklets of contemporary verse by avante-garde writers in paper wrappers.

After the death of Mathews in 1921 the firm was sold and became Elkin Mathews, Limited, and in 1926 Elkin Mathews and Marrot. The company was sold to George Allen and Unwin towards the end of World War II.
