This chapter discusses Curll's contributions to the development of the book trade in England. It notes that Curll ensured that books and authors got talked about. It details that both good and bad actions of Curll certainly brought him to public attention, and presumably helped the higher quality books to sell. It explains that for Curll, all literary works are the same, that they are all text to be printed and promoted. This chapter also points out that no one could quite replicate Curll's career.
