Henry George Bohn (1796-1884), bookseller and publisher, by 1862 had completed his major publishing enterprises. His sons were not following in the business, so he gradually sold his bookselling and publishing ventures and stock. In 1864 he sold his library series to Bell & Daldry, later Bell & Co.

Richard Griffin & Co. was located at Warwick Square, London, 1854-1858, then resided at 10 Stationers Hall Court 1859-1861, followed by Griffin Bohn & Co. at the same address 1861-1862.
