Joseph Ames (23 January 1689 – 7 October 1759) was an English bibliographer and antiquary. He purportedly wrote an account of printing in England from 1471 to 1600 entitled Typographical Antiquities (1749). It is uncertain whether he was by occupation a ship's chandler, a pattern-maker, a plane iron maker or an ironmonger. Though never educated beyond grammar school, he prospered in trade and amassed valuable collections of rare books and antiquities.

  • Joseph Ames (Yarmouth, Norfolk, 23 de janeiro de 1689 – Londres, 7 de outubro de 1759) foi um bibliógrafo e antiquário inglês. Escreveu um relato de impressão na Inglaterra de 1471 a 1600, intitulado Typographical Antiquities (1749). Não é certo se ele trabalhou fornecendo suprimentos ou equipamentos especiais para navios, se produziu moldes para serem utilizados em fundições, um marceneiro ou um serralheiro; mas levou uma vida próspera em Wapping, Londres e acumulou valiosas coleções de antiguidades.
