London printers. Henry Sampson Woodfall was the son and grandson of printers, and brother of the printer, journalist, and parliamentary reporter William, editor of the Morning Chronicle from 1774. Henry Woodfall’s daily, the Public Advertiser, made famous by the Junius letters, frequently attracted legal actions. Henry’s son and partner, George—notable for the typography and accuracy of his productions—helped introduce steam-driven printing.
