CHAPMAN (), Mrs., (?) bookseller in London, 1662. Perhaps the wife of Livewell Chapman, q. v. Mentioned in the State Papers [Charles II, vol. 67, 161], as having "managed" the printing of a pamphlet called The Face of the Times, written by Sir Harry Vane and printed with his Epistle General in 1662.

CHATFIELD (STEPHEN), bookseller in London, (1) In the middle of St. Dunstan's Churchyard in Fleet Street, 1654; (2) Under St. Dunstan's Church in Fleet Street, 1654. Only known from the imprint to the second edition of a book entitled Festorum Metropolis … by Allan Blayney, 1654. The first imprint is from the Bagford fragments [Harl. 5919 (294)], and belongs evidently to a different book or a different edition of the work noted.

CHETWIN, or CHETWIND (PHILIP), bookseller in London; Next to the Black Horse in Aldersgate, 1670 (1656–74). Married the widow of Robert Allot, 1626–36, and so became possessed of certain copyrights in various Shakespeare quartos. In 1663 he published the third folio, and followed it up with a re-issue in 1664, to which he added the seven spurious plays, no doubt with a view to increasing the sale. His address has not been found before 1670. [Arber, Term Catalogue, vol. i.]

This eminent publisher was born in the parish of St. Botolph's, Aldersgate, on January 4th, 1639.
