David Bogue (October 16, 1808 - November 1856) was a Scottish publisher and printseller active in London in the first half of the 19th century. Bogue was born in East Lothian, Scotland, from a humble farming. family. Not suited to working in the fields, he apprenticed to Thomas Ireland, a bookseller in Edinburgh. When Ireland died, in 1836, Bogue moved to London where he took a position under the bookseller Charles Tilt (1797 - 1861). Tilt took him into partnership and by 1843, had retired, leaving the business to Bogue. Bogue was a careful but prolific publisher, issuing, among other important works, Isaac Walton’s The Complete Angler. He also worked extensively with the artist, engraver, and humorist George Cruikshank (1792 - 1873), also a Tilt prodigy. Bogue died young, at just 48. Tilt, still alive at time, helped to settle Bogus affairs. By 1859, most of Bogue’s copyrights and stock, as well as the shop, had been taken over by William Kent.
