Root and Tinker (fl. c. 1870 – c. 1896) was a New York City based publisher of trade journals, prints, broadsides and trade cards active in the later part of the 19th century. The company was founded by Charles Towner Root (1849/50 - 1938), Franklin H. Tinker (1852 - 1890), and his father Henry F. Tinker (1826 - 1889). They issued journals for a variety of trades including the millinery industry, the upholstery trade, the pharmaceutical trade, and the clothing business, among others. Their broadsides reflected interests of their clientele, often extolling the heads of their respective industries. They typically relied on the New York City lithography firm of Buek and Lindner.
