Dracula, Walter Scott, a Pulitzer Prize and more – discover the history, notable books and authors of Constable & Robinson, leading independent book publisher since 1795, and 2013 IPG Trade Publisher of the Year.

The name Constable first appeared as the publisher’s name on a book in 1795 when Archibald Constable, an Edinburgh bookseller, opened an antiquarian bookshop in Edinburgh and began to publish a few original works under his own name. More than two hundred years later, Constable & Robinson still publishes under the name of Constable and is the oldest independent publishing house in the English-speaking world still trading under the name of its founder. The company and the name of Constable has a rich and varied heritage.

Constable & Robinson continues into the 21st century as part of Little, Brown Book Group.
