The Helbing Lichtenhahn Verlag in Basel is a publisher for books on law, political science and economics, as well as theology, philology, history, ancient and natural sciences, biographies and fiction. The publishing house has belonged to the CHBeck publishing house in Munich since 1998 .
The founding of the company Helbing Lichtenhahn in Basel by Johann Gottlieb Bahnmaier around the year 1822 took place when he became a partner in the CF Spittler bookstore, which had been in existence since 1816. After Bahnmaier's death (1841), Carl Moritz Detloff took over the company as «C. Detloff's bookstore ». In 1873 Rudolf Reich became a partner and the company was renamed “R. Reich formerly C. Detloff ».
In 1903, following Rudolf Reich's death, the business passed into the possession of Gustav Helbing and Hans Lichtenhahn. In 1974 the general partnership was dissolved and transferred to two joint stock companies : the "Buchhandlung W. Jäggi AG formerly Helbing & Lichtenhahn" and the "Helbing & Lichtenhahn Verlag AG". From 1977 to 1998 the publishing house Helbing & Lichtenhahn was in close cooperation with the publishing house Sauerländer in Aarau. Since 1998 the company has been owned by the CHBeck publishing house in Munich.
