This is a list of over 500 histories of individual British companies held by the British Library, arranged alphabetically by name of company. The emphasis is on Britain and on companies from the last 100 years, but it also includes some company histories relating to former colonies, and some works published before the 20th century.
Studies of sectors of British industry, railway and tramway histories, histories of industrial and co-operative societies, and histories of theatrical and operatic companies are not included in this listing. Extent and form of author and publisher details have not been standardised across the catalogues from which they derive. Where a company uses a personal name, the surname is the part of the name under which it is entered here, e.g. David Allen & Son is entered under Allen. Further entries and fuller details of company histories are given on the Integrated Catalogue.
