William Lazenby [c.1825?-c.1888?] was a London publisher of clandestine erotica. According to Sheryl_Straight, he is attributed as the publisher of The Pearl. Around 1876, he is arrested for "soliciting and inciting Charles Drew Harris to sell or publish certain obscene, wicked and lewd books". Lazenby is arrested again in 1886 and and imprisoned at age 61 for "unlawfully selling in an open public shop certain lewd books, indecent photographs and other articles".

After the Post Office (Protection) Act 1884, Lazenby together with other publishers such as Edward Avery, Charles Carrington, and Harry Sidney Nichols moved much of their business to Paris to sell in the United Kingdom by mail order
