In addition to being a dealer in coins, Denton was an engraver and printer. He translated Henri Decremps' "La Magie Blanche Devoilee" publishing it in English as "The Conjuror Unmasked . • ." (London, 1785 & 1788). In 1789, Denton was accused of counterfeiting, and although acquitted of that charge, was found guilty of possessing counterfeiting equipment and was hanged on July 1 of that year.
