Thomas Jennet (1769-1846) bookseller and printer, a native of Kirkdale, Yorkshire, was apprenticed to, and later partnership with, Robert Christopher, trading as 'Chrisopher & Jennet'. After Christopher's death in 1819 Jennet traded alone. He was the most important printer in Stockton, a magistrate and three times Mayor. After his death the business was continued as 'Jennet & Co'. A search of both Copac and OCLC fails to find any catalogues issued by Jennet. Emerson Charnley I (1782-1845) bookseller and politician, son of William and Elizabeth, 'the veteran emperor of Northumbrian booksellers' according to Dibdin who stayed with him in 1834. He published many important catalogues of antiquarian books until he gave up that side of his business to concentrate on new books in 1843. He supplied 'Literary societies, mechanics societies, book clubs, village libraries, schools... on the most liberal terms' according to an advertisement of 1839. He was active in Newcastle politics, his shop being the headquarters of the Whigs on the town council. Succeeded by his son, Emerson II.

Anderson, with their bookplate to rear paste-down (with a couple of unobtrusive stamps). Hunt, The Book Trade in Northumberland and Durham to 1860. p. 53 & 21.
