Quick Reference

Dodd was born in 1808, possibly in London, and died in London on 21 January 1881. A professional writer, he built a reputation for high-quality work, dealing with a range of subjects. Initially he worked with the publisher Charles Knight, producing articles on industrial art in the Penny Cyclopaedia (1833–4) and the English Cyclopaedia, periodicals intended to educate the ‘ordinary’ public at affordable prices. Dodd also contributed to London: The Land We Live In and the Penny Magazine (1832–45), which had a sale of two hundred thousand by the end of its first year. On 29 June 1844, publication of the Weekly Volumes began. In it, Dodd contributed his accounts of The Textile Manufactures of Great Britain, dealing with chemicals, metals and manufactures. Dodd's great talent was his ability to present statistics in an appealing and understandable manner.
