Parker & Ditson, Pub. – Boston
In 1837 this Boston publisher was located at 107 Washington Street and published and sold sheet music with Lane's design for 50 cents.
The business was a partnership of Samuel H. Parker (d. 1864) and Oliver Ditson (1811–88). They went into partnership in 1833/34 and remained in business together until their partnership was dissolved in 1842. Ditson continued as a music printer and publisher and in 1857 he took John C. Haynes as partner in Oliver Ditson & Company. Ditson was one of the most prolific and successful music publishers of the era.
