Does anyone know anything about this publisher, or the man behind it? Some of their items are inscribed with "Successors to J.E.Hawkins & Co." .. Operated out of 17 Paternoster Row. Began circa 1895 maybe.

Something of the origin of the business can be found from this extract from Footsteps of Truth 1891. I think the reference to 21 P.R. maybe a mistake as in an 1895 directory he was listed at 51 & 52 P.R. I guess some time after this he moved to 17 P.R. and took over James Hawkins business.

This note in F.O.T. 1896 gives the point when he took over J.E.H.
