BIOGRAPHICAL AND LITERARY ANECDOTES OF WILLIAM BOWYER. 17...
by Nichols, John
Reprint of the 1782 first edition. (Bigmore & Wyman II,74). Written by his partner and successor, John Nichols, this is a collection of anecdotes pertaining to the life and times of Bowyer, regarded as one of England's most learned 18th-century printers. Nichols was also an antiquarian who published many articles on topics relating to history, and this often-plagiarized volume is an important anecdotal record of its time, with many accounts of contemporary authors, printers and typefounders. Page 535 lists all printing-houses "in and about the Cities of London and Westminster," and includes printers' names, the newspapers they printed, and their location.
