Williams and Norgate

Williams and Norgate were publishers and book importers in London and Edinburgh. They specialised in both British and foreign scholarly and scientific literature.[1]

Williams & Norgate was founded by Edmund Sydney Williams (1817–1891)[2] and Frederick Norgate (1817–1908).[3] They had offices at 14 Henrietta Street, Covent Garden, London and in South Frederick Street in Edinburgh. Among other things, they published the periodicals Natural History Review, The Theological Review and The Hibbert Journal, as well as books by Thomas Henry Huxley (including his Evidence as to Man's Place in Nature) and books by Herbert Spencer. In 1911 they began the Home University Library of Modern Knowledge.
