The London publisher Humphrey Moseley produced over 300 titles between 1645 and 1660, many of them by writers now considered to be the period’s leading literary figures, including works by Donne, Beaumont and Fletcher, John Milton, and many royalist poets. Moseley was part of a publishing practice that offered readers portraits of living contemporary writers. During this period readers could also purchase expensive folios with engraved illustrations, such as John Ogilby’s translation of Aesop’s Fables.
