orange end-papers; a short history of the Ipswich printing firm compiled by one of its managing directors. W. S. Cowell Ltd. was incorporated in 1900 to take over the businesses previously carried on by Walter Samuel Cowell in the Butter Market, Market Lane and Falcon Street, Ipswich. The principal business was that of a printer and stationer, but for most of the first hundred years it was mainly styled as a 'manufacturing stationer and printer'. There was also a separate wine and spirit business, to which was attached, rather incongruously, a 'rag' business. The printing and stationery business dated from 1818, when A K Cowell established his son, Samuel Harrison Cowell (Walter's father) as a printer and stationer at No 10 Butter Market. By 1900 a wide range of printed matter was being supplied to the principal firms in Ipswich as well as to many in the Eastern Counties, and there was also a London sales office. In addition an extensive trade took place in stationery and related products, such as paper bags and wrapping paper. During the 1950s and 1960s a great volume and variety of work was produced, much of it in full colour & book work for publishers increased. Orders included the Puffin books for Allen Lane.
