Charles Smith was a publisher, engraver as well as a map and globe seller working at No. 172 (Corner of Surrey Street ) Strand, London from 1803 to 1862. From 1864 he was at 63 Charing Cross. A rival of John Cary producing very similar styled detailed maps. His fine New English Atlas published in 1804 was a model for Cary's New English Atlas published five years later in 1809. These fine large maps are beautifully engraved and were the first county maps showing longitudes based on the meridian at Greenwich Observatory.

I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.
