In 1809 W. & T. Darton of 58 Holborn Hill published Walker's Tour through England Q9 Wales, while William Darton Junr. in 1816 published Walker's Geographical Pustime. William Darton was the publisher of Virtue Rewarded and Vice Punished in 1818, and the latest dated game was Fruit Basket of 1882. In 1802 as Darton & Harvey they printed and published the book of rules for Samuel Conder’s A Grammatical Game in Rhyme. This family were the publishers of many books for children. The publishing trade would seem to have been a very friendly one in those days, for when in 1804 Conder & Jones issued their Mythological Amusement, it stated that it was “sold also by”: J. Harris, St. Paul's Church Yard; Darton & Harvey, Gracechurch Street; B. Tabart, Bond Street; and by the author.
