Abraham John Valpy

Abraham John Valpy (1786 – 19 November 1854) was an English printer and publisher.


He was the son of the Reading schoolmaster Richard Valpy and was born in that town. He is remembered in connection with two great undertakings in the department of classical literature. These were reissues of (1) Stephanus' Greek Thesaurus, for which E. H. Barker was chiefly responsible; and (2) the Delphin Classics in 143 volumes with variorum notes, under the editorial superintendence of George Dyer. He also founded the Classical Journal in 1810.[1]
