Product Overview

In October 1768 John Murray founded the publishing house which until recently remained an independent. He had no publishing experience and began with a capital of just 700 GBP. On his death, twenty-five years later, Murray's stocks, shares and copyrights were worth 12,000 GBP. Using John Murray's extensive archive, William Zachs charts the story of the man and the publishing house.
