Note BL Database of Bookbindings:

s.v. BL c108k7: “Charles McLeish Sr. began his bookbinding career as an apprentice to Andrew Grier in Edinburgh. He then moved to London and worked for Riviere until 1893 when he joined Cobden-Sanderson at the Doves Bindery working there until the bindery closed in 1909. He then established his own bindery with his son, Charles Jr.”

Ibid. s.v. BL C188a359: “Charles (1859-1948), was the finisher at the Doves Bindery from its establishment in 1893 until 1909, when he left to start his own business at 5 Swallow Street, Piccadilly. He took another son, also called Charles, into partnership and his daughter did the sewing and book-keeping. For some years he continued to return to the Doves Bindery to complete the more elaborate bindings, and Cobden-Sanderson donated some of the necessary tools and equipment for his new venture. […] in 1920 the two Charleses moved to 17 Houghton Street, Aldwych, where they merged with [son] George and [son] Peter also joined the firm, which was thereafter known as McLeish and Sons.”
