Frank Kidson writes:

John Walsh, father and son, were the largest and most eminent of music publishers during the eighteenth century. For seventy years they held a monopolising position and were in their century what the Palyford family had been in the preceding one: with the distinction that while it might be within reasonable possibility to number the publications of the Playfords, those of the Walsh' are practically countless, though nevertheless a bibliographical list (even if imperfect) and a carefully compiled history of the latter's business history would be a most desirable work.
