Charles Hitch (d. 1764), son-in-law of Arthur Bettesworth was Master of the Stationers’ Company in London in 1758. Despite this, Bettesworth and Hitch got into trouble in 1735 in a row over copyright, involving George Faulkner, the Dublin printer and the complications of the differences in copyright protection on different sides of the Irish Sea, and had an injunction awarded against them in 1735. Charles Rollin (1661-1741) was a French historian and educator and rector of the University of Paris for 2 years. Belles Lettres explains the method of teaching and studying literature. [Pic: JM1 044]
