William Hone, 1780–1842, English writer and bookseller. He was tried and acquitted three times in 1817 for publishing parodies on the church and the government. Besides writing political satires (illustrated by Cruikshank), he published highly popular compilations of miscellaneous information on such subjects as manners, e.g., the Every-Day Book (2 vol., 1826–27).
