Summary
Charles Knight (1791-1873), the son of a Windsor bookseller, was apprenticed to his father at 14. He read widely and systematically, and began to buy, collect and sell rare books. He also worked as a journalist, and, on moving to London, set up as a publisher, then took to freelance writing, and acted as manager of the publications of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. His three-volume autobiography provides insights into the economics - as well as the personalities - of the mid-Victorian publishing world
