James Catnach was a 19th-century English printer and publisher. He is known for publishing cheap, illustrated ballads and broadsides, which were popular among working-class readers. He operated his business from a shop in Seven Dials, London, and was known for his aggressive marketing tactics, which often involved selling his publications on the streets and in public places. He was also involved in a number of legal battles over the content of his publications, which were often seen as controversial or offensive. Despite this, he was successful in his business and became one of the most well-known publishers of his time.
