Vicente Salva (1786 - 1849), grammarian, bibliographer, bookseller and publisher, was a Spanish political exile in England who started out by opening a bookshop with his son. In 1824, while in London, he created a library in Spanish and the Classics with the help of his English friends. The library soon became a gathering place for liberal Spanish emigrants. He was also professor of Greek at the University of London. He expanded his business to publishing and, from 1830, also operated in Paris.
