Hide Profile

M'Carty & Davis were early Philadelphia booksellers and publishers. The firm, owned by William M'Carty (1788?-1861) and Thomas Davis (1790?-1851), was a successor to Johnson & Warner, who were noted for publishing children's books. Jacob Johnson (1771?-1819) and Benjamin Warner (1786-1821) sold their firm in 1815 to M'Carty and Davis. In 1831, Moses Polock (1817-1903) was employed by M'Carty & Davis as a clerk. Twenty years later Polock acquired the business and upon his death the firm descended to Polock's nephew, Abraham Simon Wolf Rosenbach (1876-1952).
