24.5.1807 explanation, S S, on Belcher & Bovy
S S usually means Skinner Street in Godwin's diary (where he ran his bookshop and later lived as well). Belcher and Bovy both appear just this once in the diary. See work notes below

Edwards, engr

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Friday, 22 May, 1807

22.5.1807 call on Edwards, engr
Most likely engr was short for engraver (though engineer is possible). The only Edwards engraver I could find active in 1807 was William Camden Edwards (DNB 1777-1855) but he was apparently living in Bungay, Suffolk in 1807 and for most of his life. There was a Humphrey Edwards engineer at 3 Mill-st, Lambeth-walk in 1815 P.O. directory. Richard Edwards printer was at Red Lion-ct, Fleet-st from 1804 and later moved to 6 Crane-ct, Fleet-st till his death in 1829. But probably none of these
