Stockdale (1750-1814) was a successful English publisher and bookseller. He started work with ‘radical’ publisher John Almon in the early 1780s before setting up his own premises in Piccadilly. His shop was regularly frequented by the supporters of prominent Tory statesman, William Pitt. Stockdale was in somewhat of a business and political rivalry with another bookseller, John Debrett whose shop was often visited by the opposing party, the Whigs.
