Donohue & Henneberry (Donohue, Henneberry & Co.)
Founded by two bookbinders, Michael A. Donohue (of Cox & Donohue) and William P. Henneberry. At 407-425 Dearborn 1871; first publishing 1879; in 1890 launched series of inexpensive editions of popular novelists, concentrated on libraries (i.e., sets and series). Some plates sold to Lovell in 1890. Did much job printing for competitors in cheap book trade. Donohue bought out Henneberry in 1903. (DLB 49).
Donohue & Henneberry produced Luciles in two formats ("handy volume" and "library-size"), each routinely offered in several bindings. As the firm's 1895 PTLA catalog makes clear, many of the binding styles were also offered, packaged with a second title, in two-volume sets. Known editions are arranged here first by format, then chronologically (as can be best determined).
The Henneberry Company
Chicago and New York, 1901?-1919?.
"Another printer who became a major Chicago name in the field should be mentioned, although he was not an "old" publisher, with antebellum roots. John Cuneo was, in fact, only twenty-one in 1907 when he bought the bankrupt bookbinding business of Jenkins & George, changed its name to John F. Cuneo Co. and made it so successful that at the end of the First World War, in 1919, he took over the Henneberry Co., a large printing and bookmaking concern, calling it the Cuneo-Henneberry Co. Four years later, he acquired the Sears printing plant and formed a separate company, the Cuneo Printing Corporation, and it was these organizations which became the basis of a printing empire encompassing Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and Milwaukee."
