Scripture Geography...


John Seller, was active as an instrument maker, surveyor, cartographer and publisher. He was appointed hydrographer to King Charles II in 1671. Seller is particularly important in the history of cartography as the publisher of the first English Pilot, but he also produced atlases, works on navigation, almanacs and loose sheet maps. Because of the rarity of complete copies of this work, we append a list of the plates.
