Hachette and Co.
(fl. 1801 – 1864)

Hachette and Co. was founded by Louis Hachette (1801 - 1864) in 1826 with the purchase of the Paris Bookshop Brédif. Shortly after acquiring the bookshop Louis Hachette began publishing Le Journal pour Tous, a successful general interest magazine. He also published a series of useful reference works which were sold through Paris in bookshops, train stations, and public offices. These included multiple maps and atlases geared toward the tourist visiting Paris for the first time. Louis Hachette himself died in 1864, but his empire continued to grow under the governance of his sons. Eventually the Hachette publishing firm came to dominate French publishing and attracted international interest. Via a series of mergers and acquisitions the firm eventually came under the control of Filipacchi Media and was rename Hachette-Filipacchi. Today the firm publishes books and magazines internationally. Click here for a list of rare maps from Hachette and Co..
