William Miller (1769–1844), one of the most popular publishers in London of the period, succeeded by John Murray. He published the poems of Walter Scott, Howlett's ‘Views of Lincolnshire’ and Forster's edition of the ‘Arabian Nights Entertainments'. However, after paying £4,500 for the copyright of Charles James Fox's ‘History of the Reign of James II’, the largest sum ever given for literary property, he only just covered his expenses.
