Cassell & Company is a British book publishing house, founded in 1848 by John Cassell (1817–1865). It became an international publishing group company in the 1890's.

Vincent Brooks (1815-1885) was a British printmaker, publisher, and stationer, and one of the most prominent figures of Victorian printing. His father, John, was a printer and stationer, known mostly as a publisher of 'radical' pamphlets. Vincent is first recorded as trading under his own name in 1848, adopting the lithographic process and experimenting with chromolithography. His empire continued to flourish, eventually buying up the businesses of competitors, including the Leighton Brothers and Hodgson & Son, as well as blocks and material from George Baxter. His most notable acquisition came in 1867, when he purchased Day & Son, adding his name to the company and successfully resurrecting it as 'Vincent Brooks, Day & Son.'
