Description The publishing house of Adam and Charles Black was founded in 1807 when Adam Black opened his own bookshop. In 1889 the company made the huge move from Scotland to London — taking up residence in 4,5,6 and 7 Soho Square.

A&C Black is perhaps most famous for its publication of Who's Who since 1897, although the backlist and continuing publication schedule proves the extensive and varied nature of the list. Encompassing books on sport, fitness and training; books on visual arts, glass, ceramics and printmaking; titles on all aspects of sailing and boating; books for birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts and of course a substantial reference list, A&C Black also publishes a wide range of children's fiction and non-fiction books.

Operating once more from Soho Square and now owned by Bloomsbury, A&C Black is as successful and forward-thinking as ever.
