Note Joseph Gleave, 1773-1828, was born in Tabley, Cheshire. He was a bookseller and printer, particularly interested in promoting Sunday Schools. The business was taken over in 1828 by his youngest son, also called Joseph. An early Manchester imprint, Manchester was a small town until Arkwright opened the Cotton Mill in 1780. From around 1800, Manchester grew at an astonishing rate, becoming a city in 1835.
