Summary

During his writing career Collins used nine English publishers for first editions in book form, starting with Longman (1848) for the biography of his father and ending with Chatto & Windus, which ultimately took over twenty-nine of his copyrights. Collins was a firm but fair negotiator but particularly so when he was established as an author, when he would frequently change publishers in order to secure the most advantageous financial arrangement.
