unknown1764, Mar 27
an English biographer. Joseph practised as an attorney, and amassed considerable wealth. Besides property in various counties, he possessed a "pleasant little seat in Richmond, Surrey, called the Belvidere". After his retirement from the practice of the law Grove unfortunately betook himself to bookmaking. His contributions to learning are of small value. He had a passion for 'adorning' his books with copper-plates, which from their unintentional comicality serve to relieve the heaviness of the text.
