Description

Scanned directly from 'Old and New London - Its History, its people and its places', published by Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co. 1878.

This illustration depicts Jacob Tonson, sometimes referred to as Jacob Tonson the elder (1655/6–1736), an 18th-century English bookseller and publisher. Tonson published editions of John Dryden and John Milton, and is best known for having obtained a copyright on the plays of William Shakespeare by buying up the rights of the heirs of the publisher of the Fourth Folio after the Statute of Anne went into effect. He was also the founder of the famous Kit-Cat Club. His nephew, Jacob Tonson the younger (1682–1735) was his business partner. The business was continued by the younger Tonson's son Jacob Tonson (1714–1767).
