THE CARTOGRAPHER

EDWARD LANGLEY

Flourished 1800 - 1835

Edward Langley was a well stablished engraver, printer, bookseller and publisher setting uphill own printing shop in Dorking in 1799. He later moved to 173 High Street, Borough, London where he worked closely with William Belch up until 1820. They are best known to collectors of English county maps for their atlas Langley's New County Atlas of England and Wales published in 1818. The maps in the atlas are dated between 1816 and 1818. The title to each map appears above the map area and starts Langley's Map of ..... Each map bears an uncoloured vignette view. Beneath each map are the names of Langley and Belch. Each map has early outline hand colouring. I cannot remember having seen uncoloured examples. The partnership broke up in 1819 when it went into bankruptcy. A further edition of the atlas was published by Joseph Phelps who replaced the text beneath each map to show his own name and the date of 1820.

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.
