Hi nifty13,

As you indicated in your comment, it's difficult (perhaps impossible)
to find a completely comprehensive list of travel guide book
companies.  However, I believe that you will be pleased with this set
of lists, which include at least a couple of hundred travel guide book

"Travel Publishers"
Yahoo! Directory

"Map & Travel Publishers"

"Participants in Travel Publishers Association's Events"
Travel Publishers Association

"Directory of Non-Fiction Publishers : Travel - Guides"

"Travel Publishers"

"Comparatif des Guides de voyage" (14 mars 2005)
Around the Worlds

"Welke reisgids gebruiken ?"

You might also be interested in this list of travel book and map publishers:

"Reisgidsen & Cartografie" [towards bottom of page]

See also:

"Le Guide"

Please let me know if you need any clarification of this answer.

Questions asking for "all" of anything often remain unanswered, since
it is usually difficult or impossible to satisfy such a request. You
may be more likely to get a response if you ask for a list of a
specified size. Increasing your price may also enhance your chances of
getting an answer. Quite frankly, at your current price, a Researcher
might be expected to search for fifteen minutes or so, which isn't
likely to produce much.

Yeah - I though about both of those things right after I posted the
question.  In fact, I'm not even sure how to ask it, but will try to
reformat it and up the price later today.  Thanks for the advice.
