I think the big five structure of publishing came around ~early / mid-20th century.
This guy — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxwell_Perkins — is one of the big big names and I *think* the turning point.
That is really interesting. I knew that it was a fairly new structure but hadn’t done any serious research on how it began. I’ll have to see if there is a good biography on him.
