This page is provided to show the publishing heritage on which we draw. It is hoped that this will be of use, both in identifying the origins of material we re-publish and of the books included in our used book listings.
The majority of the publishers listed below operated a book publishing depot on behalf of those espousing a particular line of "Brethren" teaching. In some cases, depots were operated at the same time. Those listed with (*) after their names are known to have published "Brethren" writers, but their other associations with the "brethren" are not known to the compiler.
This page is very much "under construction". Please e-mail email@example.com with any corrections/additions you may have.

The "Lowe division" amongst the brethren took place in 1890/91. The following published the writings of William Lowe and those in sympathy with his teachings from that date. In 1903-1908 the "Tunbridge Wells division" split the Lowe brethren. In 1933, many Lowe and Kelly brethren were united and, particularly in the United Kingdom, many Tunbridge Wells brethren were also reconciled to the united group: hence the convenient, but lengthy, "Kelly-Lowe-Tunbridge Wells" designation.
