The Last Will of Williston Fish

An Early London Edition

Charles Loundsberry, [Williston Fish.] The Happy Testament. London: Chatto & Windus, 1913.

Chatto & Windus, 1913Williston Fish would have been especially annoyed by this London imprint, which not only contained the “improved” version he so despised, but also illustrated the text, spelled his ancestor’s name incorrectly, and erroneously claimed to be the first bound edition of the work. Chatto & Windus was originally a Victorian publisher of literature in London, founded by Andrew Chatto (1841–1913). The publisher remained independent until 1969 when it merged with Jonathan Cape. The firm published broadly in the field of literature, including novels and poetry. Chatto & Windus has been an part of Random House since 1987.
