Acquiring a reputation as a fine and sought-after craftsman, he introduced techniques to improve the functionality of his bindings and worked for W. Pickering, and Oxford University Press. Although he employed over 40 staff in the 1840s, competition from cheaper binders eventually forced him into bankruptcy in 1861, when he sold the business.
