English bookseller and publisher, Edward Lloyd. In the London Directory for 1841
he is listed as a civil engineer, living at 42 Burton Street, and the British Museum catalogue mentions him in 1842 as editing the Queen's Magazine. Rymer's novels appeared in England under his own name as well as under the anagrams
