The Company

Market House Books was originally set up to produce the Collins English Dictionary, the first major English Dictionary since the 1930s. Since then we have originated over 200 authoritative reference books. 

We are experts in the compilation of encyclopedias of all shapes and sizes, including the one-volume Macmillan Encyclopedia, the six-volume Larousse Encyclopedia, and the ten-volume Collins Encyclopedia.

We can develop your ideas for dictionaries, encyclopedias, and other reference books in conjunction with a team of professional artists and designers. Our service is efficient, reliable, and competitive.
