OF

THE OLD BOOKSELLERS.
Τ

BY CHARLES KNIGHT.

“Now learning itself is a trade. A man goes to a bookseller, and
gets what he can. We have done with patronage. In the infancy
of learning, we find some great man praised for it. This diffused it
among others. When it becomes general, an author leaves the great,
and applies to the multitude."--JOHNSON, in 1773.
