Anne Bland was established at 23, Oxford Street prior to 1790, and issued sheet music and yearly sets of dances.

In 1793 she went into partnership with Weller, and Bland & Weller remained the firm until 1818, at which date Bland's name is absent either through death or retirement.

From 1819 to 1821, the name given in the trade directories is Weller & Co; it is not present in 1820.

Bland and Weller did a rather extensive trade and published Hook's collections of Vauxhall Songs from 1793 till at least 1800, yearly books of country dances and sheet music.
