London 1735-1775

Exeter Working Papers in British Book Trade History; 3
The London book trades, 1735-1775: a checklist of members in trade directories and in Musgrave's Obituary

Names beginning with: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, R, S, T, U, V, W, Y. Abbreviations & references.


This checklist was originally prepared for the British Library in 1977 so that the information could be available for the team working on the Eighteenth-Century Short Title Catalogue. After the ESTC entered its second stage and the British Book Trades Index had been proposed, it was made more generally available in a revised form in 1983 as Exeter working paper no. 3, so that it could prove of assistance to other libraries and individuals working on both those projects. The original checklist was compiled purely from trade directories in the excellent collections of Guildhall Library, London and from those entries in Sir William Musgrave's Obituary prior to 1800 (1899-1901) which indicated that the person was engaged in the book trades. No other sources were checked for confirmation as it was decided to let the two sources speak for themselves.

Sources, For this web version some additional information has been incorporated to identify and differentiate individuals better. The sources used and their abbreviations are as follows:

McK. McKenzie, D.F. Stationers' Company apprentices 1701-1800 (Oxford Bibliographical Society, 1977).

Mus. Musgrave, Sir William . Obituary prior to 1800 (Harleian Society, 1899-1901).

Plomer Plomer, H.R. A dictionary of the printers and booksellers who were at work in England, Scotland and Ireland from 1726 to 1775 (Bibliographical Society, 1932).

Timp. Timperley, C.H. Encyclopedia of literary and typographical anecdote (H.G.Bohn, 1842).

The present compiler's The London book trades 1775-1800 carries the information on into the last quarter of the 18th century and beyond but as the directories were searched for the present list in more detail than for the 1775-1800 list, they may in fact provide amended information for some entries in that list,

The standard work on London directories is The directories of London 1677-1977 by P.J.Atkins (1990) which extends and largely supersedes The London directories 1677-1855 by Charles William Frederick Goss (1932).

Dates, The sources for dates taken from directories are indicated by the appropriate initial letters placed after the date. The New complete guide (N) is very outdated in much of its information, and shows signs of copying from Kent's directory. Kent tends to be relatively up to date in this early period, as comparison with terminal dates dervied from directories with obituary dates will show. Where directories apparently retain outdated information, this is normally indicated at the end of the entry using the style "Still listed 1768N-1770N". Where the terminal date in a range is taken from a directory and the initial date is not, it can be assumed that only that one directory has been found to list the individual. Virtually the only flesh on the bare bones of the directory listing is provided by Mortimer's directory of 1763, unfortunately only one edition of which was published. With a few exceptions, street numbering first appears in London directories in Kent's directory of 1767 (1767K). For dates prior to that a house number is preceded by a question mark where there is no reason to believe that the address differs from that after house numbering was introduced.
