Edmund Weaver

Edmund Weaver was a draper and a bookseller in London in the 1600s.


Edmund Weaver was an apprentice to Thomas Wight and was 'clothed' in 1607 and became master of the Worshipful Company of Drapers in 1637. He was married to Jane Weaver, who died on August 29, 1636. He was appointed a Commissioner of Hereford by an act of parliament in 1648. [ [http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.asp?compid=32772 House of Lords Journal Volume 10 17 March 1648] ]

Weaver had many important books printed so he could sell them in his shop near St. Paul's Church in London. He published Robert Cawdrey's book, "A Table Alphabeticall" in 1604. "A Table Alphabeticall" was the first monolingual dictionary in the English language. Weaver went on to publish 3 subsequent editions of "A Table Alphabeticall" as well.
