Publisher, Poet. James Thomas Fields joined the publishing firm of William Ticknor in 1839; the company was known as Ticknor & Fields after 1846 and operated out of the Old Corner Bookstore, now part of the Freedom Trail in Boston. The company became the major publishing house of the Boston area, working with notable authors like Charles Dickens, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, James Russell Lowell, and Oliver Wendell Holmes.
