Thomas Egerton was a bookseller and publisher in Whitehall, London c. 1750–1830. With his brother and business partner John Egerton he took over the enterprise established by John Millan. For some years Egerton's office stood on Charing Cross. Books published included works by Jane Austen.
The brothers were also well-known auctioneers, selling the collections of men such as John Smeaton, Lemuel Dole Nelme, Francis Blackburne, the particularly large library of the actor John Henderson, and "perhaps the largest English eighteenth century collection of coins and medals sold at auction ... that of Thomas Allen Barnard on 20-23 April 1789".
Thomas Egerton died on 26 August 1830, in his 81st year, described as "of Whitehall".
