The Tower Of London. A Historical Romance.
By William Harrison Ainsworth. Illustrated By George Cruikshank.
Published by Henry G. Bohn: London 1845 Sixth Edition

William Harrison Ainsworth (1805 - 1882) was an English historical novelist born at King Street in Manchester. He trained as a lawyer, but the legal profession held no attraction for him. While completing his legal studies in London he met the publisher John Ebers, at that time manager of the King's Theatre, Haymarket. Ebers introduced Ainsworth to literary and dramatic circles, and to his daughter, who became Ainsworth's wife.
