Joseph Dale, had a very small business run from a private house in Chancery Lane until in 1780 when he bought the entire stock in trade and circulating library of a well-established publisher called S Badd. If we are to believe an advertisement issued by Dale, Babb's Musical Library numbered over 100,000 books. Dale moved his business to Babb's old premises at 132, Oxford Street, facing Hanover Square where it became one of the most important businesses of its time.
