Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joseph Ames (23 January 1689 - 7 October 1759) was an English bibliographer and antiquary. He wrote an account of printing in England from 1471 to 1600, entitled Typographical Antiquities (1749). It is uncertain whether he was by occupation a ship's chandler, a pattern-maker, a plane iron maker or an ironmonger; but he led a prosperous life at Wapping, and amassed valuable collections of antiquities. He was the eldest child of John Ames, a master in the merchant service and sixth son of Captain Joseph Ames, R.N. Joseph Ames was born at Yarmouth on 23 January 1689, and was educated at a small grammar school in Wapping.
