Harper is a historic publishing house that originated in New York City in 1817, established by James and John Harper. Known initially as Harper & Brothers, it has been responsible for notable publications such as Harper’s New Monthly Magazine. The company underwent various changes, including mergers and acquisitions, and significant expansions. In 1987, it merged with Collins in the UK, leading to the creation of HarperCollins. HarperCollins, still active today, has a broad reach with imprints spanning multiple genres and a presence in both the United States and the United Kingdom. The publishing house has been associated with renowned authors and illustrators such as Agatha Christie, Harper Lee, Maurice Sendak, and Shel Silverstein.

Harper (publisher) (Wikipedia)

Harper is an American publishing house, the flagship imprint of global publisher HarperCollins based in New York City. Founded in New York in 1817 by James Harper and his brother John, the company operated as J. & J. Harper until 1833, when it changed its name to Harper & Brothers, reflecting the inclusion of Joseph and Fletcher Harper. Harper began publishing Harper's Magazine, Harper's Weekly, and other periodicals beginning in the 1850s. From 1962 to 1990, the company was known as Harper & Row after its merger with Row, Peterson & Company. Harper & Row was purchased in 1987 by News Corporation and combined with William Collins, Sons, its United Kingdom counterpart, in 1990 to form HarperCollins, although the Harper name has been used in its place since 2007.
