Abstract

The London book trade recruited skilled craftsmen from abroad, in spite of official discouragement. This study examines the work of French printers and booksellers, starting in the Tudor period. The main focuses are on the impact of Huguenot immigrants in the late 17th century and on catholic and royalist refugees following the Revolution. It ends with an analysis of trade developments in the 19th century. A number of case studies are given of representative individuals
