When William Chambers arrived in Boston, he visited Gould & Lincoln, and the two firms were still doing business occasionally in the late 1850s. Unlike Boston and New York, Philadelphia had trade connections to the southern states, and the old Northeast and the expanding West. The William Chambers–Joshua Lippincott relationship flourished through several generations of both families. W. & R. Chambers had become far more confident in their dealings with the United States by the middle of the 1850s. The Chambers–Lippincott relationship of the 1850s was an ideal opportunity to examine the role by the transatlantic steamship services in British publishers' efforts to do business with the United States.
