ISO: John Mott a Printer in New York, mid-1700s

From the Contact form:

I’m related to John Mott a printer in New York (possibly Long Island) during the middle 1700s. His daughter was Amelia Mott who married John Ryan (a printer born in Newport and who set up several newspapers in Atlantic Canada) and Jacob S. Mott (who learned printing from his father). I am looking to learn more about John Mott from New York and was wondering if you could recommend any books covering the history of printing in New York from 1730–1800.
