One of the finest reference books on eighteeth century English prints. Clayton examines the world in which the printseller lived and worked, describing the structure of the print trade and processes of publication as well as examining the history of separately published prints. Tim Clayton read English at Cambridge and after several years working for the print collector Christopher Lennox-Boyd won a research fellowship at Worcester College, Oxford. He has written several award winning books and his latest 'Waterloo: Four Days that Changed Europe's Destiny'(2014) has been widely acclaimed as the best book on the subject. Most recently he co-curated 'Bonaparte and the British- prints and propaganda in the age of Napoleon' at the British Museum.
