John Seller Information

John Seller

Hydrographer to James II, Queen Anne and Charles II

A prolific British cartographer of the 17th century producing many atlases, maps and charts. Became a Freeman of the Merchant Taylors' Company in 1654. Warden of the Clockmakers' Company from 1692 to 1696. Appointed as Hydrographer to the King in 1671 and initiated the first English maritime atlas The English Pilot which was able to compete with the Dutch who had tended to dominate this field. For collectors of British county maps he produced a series of 66 maps first published in 1695 in Anglia Contracta. These maps were republished a number of times. In 1701 Joseph Wild included them in Camden's Britannia Abridg'd. There was a gap of some 80 years before the the map plates were used again by Francis Grose in the four volumes Supplement to the Antiquities of England and Wales published between 1777 and 1787. This edition are easily to identify as the name of John Seller has been deleted and the maps appear at the top half of a page with a historical descriptin of the county below.

Excellent Book for the County Map Collector

If you can find a copy

When I started collecting and selling maps back in the 1960's there were very few reference books on antique maps. The first book I remember buying was Maps and Mapmakers by R. V. Tooley. Full of wonderful information but over the years there were periods when it was out of print. The Antique Collectors Club used to produce a large range of books on all kinds of antiques and in 1983 - BRITISH COUNTY MAPS by YASHA BERISINER was published. To the best of my knowledge there has not been another book like it published. A most useful and informative work and essential for the avid county map collector. I think there was just the one edition. If you can get hold of a copy at a reasonable price my advice would be - Buy it. There is a link below that will search Amazon for copies on sale.

My well used copy pictured on the right still has its distinctive red cover illustrating Cambridgeshire by John Speed. The county I was born in.

British County Maps by Yasha Beresiner

ENJOY THE SLENDOUR OF THE MAGNIFICENT 17TH CENTURY MAPS BY

THE BLAEU FAMILY

Back in in the 1960's I was fortunate to buy my first set of atlases by Joan Blaeu. It was in fact an incomplete set of seven volumes all bound in contemporary Dutch cream calf decorated with gold. The colouring was superb and in a way unique in that if I see any Blaeu maps now I would be able to identify whether they came from this same set. I bought the atlases at a well know London auction house having set off early that morning on the train from Chester. These were the days before the hated buyer's premium arrived. In fact if you were able to buy the atlases today at auction the buyer's premium alone would probably be about the price I paid for the set. I remember struggling back to Euston station with the volumes and was so protective that I would not even let the porter help me along the platform and onto the train. The atlases were later split and brought a lot of pleasure to a lot of my customers.

You can enjoy looking at these remarkable engraved maps of most parts of the world via a series of reproduction atlases produced in full colour
