The Harper Centennial, 1817-1917

Excerpt from The Harper Centennial, 1817-1917: A Few of the Greetings and Congratulations Before this change, the increasing business of the young firm had made larger quarters necessary, and in 1825 these were found on Cliff Street, on a site included in the Harper holdings ever since. The sub sequent development of a great business is a part of national history. An intimate record is to be found in Mr. J. Henry Harper's book, The House of Harper, which amplifies outstanding events like the birth of Harper's Magazine in June, 1850, and the destruction of the entire Harper plant by fire in December, 1853, which was promptly followed by the erection of the present buildings, the first important example of fireproof construction in New York. The century of literary achievement which the House of Harper represents began with Senecaand closes with the President of the United States. The Directors of Harper 85 Brothers count it a happy omen that the new Documentary Edition of President Wilson's History of the American People should signalize the close of the first century of the House and the beginning of the second.
