Executive summary: 18th century English publisher
English publisher, born at Southwater, Sussex, on the 1st of December 1675, and started business as a publisher in London about 1698. He published for many of the leading writers of the day, notably John Vanbrugh, Richard Steele, John Gay and Alexander Pope. The latter's Rape of the Lock in its original form was first published in Lintot's Miscellany, and Lintot subsequently issued Pope's translation of the Iliad and the joint translation of the Odyssey by Pope, Fenton and Broome. Pope quarrelled with Lintot with regard to the supply of free copies of the latter translation to the author's subscribers, and in 1728 satirized the publisher in the Dunciad, and in 1735 in the Prologue to the Satires, though he does not appear to have had any serious grievance. Lintot died on the 3rd of February 1736.
