Reminder for GHW: check out this entry by H. G. Aldis in the Cambridge History of English and American Literature (1907-1921) at Bartleby.com. I certainly need to learn more about James Lackington, one of the most successful booksellers of eighteenth-century Britain and an ex-Methodist. Megan Benton first told me about Lackington when I met her at SHARP 2003. He published his Memoirs in 1791, and it looks like they’ve been reprinted in a modern edition. Amazon.com also lets me know that Lackington gets a mention by James Raven on page 180 of The Practice and Representation of Reading in England.
