R. Cambray & Co was established in the year 1890 to provide service to the legal fraternity. Apart from publishing books on law (civil & criminal), few historical books were published by the company. The company was involved in importing books and journals from U. K. USA, Australia, Canada and other neighboring countries to meet requirement of Indian Market.
Historical back ground of this company is a rare phenomenon. Our great grandfather Late Thakurdas Kar had started Law & Antiquarian books publishing business in the year 1890 by the name and style of ‘Kar & Co.’ at Calcutta. Having difficulties in publishing book without any easily available press, he had to set up his own press in the name of “Valmiki Press” where plenty of Law and Historical books were printed and published with the blessings of eminent jurist like Sir Ashutosh Mookerjee, C. R. Das and many others. His business flourished and soon became one of the most distinguished publishers in the field of law. In order to get adequate facilities during British Raj the dynamic and foresighted Thakurdas Kar established “R. Cambray & Co.” from Kar & Co. At that time company’s registered office was situated at 8 Hasting Street, Opposite High Court, Calcutta.
Today R. Cambray & Co. Pvt. Ltd. having it’s registered office at 14, Ganesh Chandra Avenue, Kolkata. Due to increase its volume of business, the production and editorial office of the company have been shifted to 10, Ganesh Chandra Avenue, 1st floor, Kolkata. The Name and fame of R. Cambray is now well known to all those who are in legal profession and law publishing business throughout India & abroad.
