William Redmayne worked as a mapseller, printer and stationer at the Crown on Adle Hill and Jewen Street in London. His career came to an abrupt end when he was imprisioned in Newgate for libel in 1719. He died there of fever the same year.
To map collectors William Redmayne is best known for his set of 52 playing cards each showing a different county of England and Wales. Now quite rare and difficuly to aquire you may be interested in the dating of the three editions. 1676, 1677 and about 1717
The two specimens below come from my own collection and as you will see have the decorative border and therefore from the 1711 - 12 edition published by John Lenthall.

John Lenthall published the final edition of William Redmayne's playing cards in 1717. His business addresses are listed below. He started by joining his father-in-law and former master William Warter in 1708 and took control of the business the following year when Warter retired.
Besides publishing an edition of William Redmayne's playing cards he worked with P. Overton and T. Taylor on The Circle of Bavaria; William Berry's A New Mapp of the kingdome of England and Wales.
