Biography

Bookseller and publisher; free of the Stationers' Company 1617. In this year begins a string of titles that continues until 1641 (see STC). In 1617-8 all his books were sold for him by Edward Blount (qv). He used five addresses in the period 1623-41, of which the most important were at the Greyhound in St Paul's Churchyard (1628-35) and the Unicorn near Fleet Bridge (1636-9).
Milbourne registered in the Stationer's register on 23 November 1637 a 'picture of the Italian young man with his brother growing out of his side with some verses thereunto'; no impression of this has been found. His address at the Greyhound is on Martin Droeshout's engraving of Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden (Hind II 352.7) which appeared as the frontispiece to a book by Alexander Gil published in 1632 (STC 11875).
