Samuel Richardson (1689-1761) was an 18th century writer best known for his epistolary novels Pamela (1740), Clarissa (1748), and The History of Sir Charles Grandison (1753). Richardson was also a printer. With meticulous detective work on some 500 ornaments, Keith Maslen was able to identify titles printed by Richardson, which numbered some 2300 individual works. Maslen’s Samuel Richardson of London Printer: A Study of his Printing based on Ornament Use and Business Accounts was published in 2001. This copy of Sir Charles Grandison – printed by Richardson – was part of a large 18th century collection owned by Maslen that was eventually acquired by Special Collections.
