Abstract

William Bowyer (1663-1737) was apprenticed to the London printer Miles Flesher in 1679. After a fire destroyed his premises in White Friars, Bowyer relocated to Temple Lane in October 1713. His son, William Bowyer Jr, joined the printing business in June 1722. One very important aspect concerning the firm is the survival of their ledgers that detail the books printed during 1710 and 1777. Dunedin-based academic Keith Maslen, along with John Lancaster, diligently deciphered the Bowyer Ledgers (1991). Primary resources were vital for this undertaking, so Maslen collected a number of Bowyer printings. Cheselden’s The Anatomy of the Human Body was once in his library.
