The introduction to this book discusses the prevailing view of the unique relationship in Romantic Literature between Byron and John Murray. It offers a brief overview of attitudes towards booksellers and publishers in the 18th century and argues that this perception was highly influential among later authors. It also interrogates the distinction between the terms ‘publisher’ and ‘bookseller’ and demonstrates the significance of this distinction as it relates to John Murray. The introduction concludes by providing a short overview of the content of the book.
