John Stockdale (1749 - 1814) was a book and print publisher. Between 1780 and 1781 he worked for the radical publisher John Almon, then on his own account in Piccadilly. In 1788 he was indicted, unsuccessfully, for libel after publishing John Logan's Review of the Charges Against Warren Hastings. His business was carried on after his death by his son John Joseph.
