John Mylrea, 1819-

Would appear to have moved to the Island in 1843 as on 4 Feb 1843 (Manx Liberal) he advertises his new shop and that he had had the management of a first rate bookbinding and store in Liverpool. The advert also invites inspection of his specimens of engraving and copper plate prints. Shop was in Duke Street adjoining Mr Manson, druggist. Not a printer but publisher of guide books and other publications. Produced a fine set of views from 1846 and published the very fine set by Burkill in 1857.

Also opened a circulating library in October 1847.
