Edward Wells (1667-1727)
Profile :
A mathematician and teacher of geography, Wells issued in 1700 A New Sett of Maps dedicated to William, Duke of Gloucester, who was then a student of geography at Oxford; unfortunately the Duke died, aged eleven, in July of the same year. The maps, highly regarded when issued for their accuracy, were bold and colourful. His map of North America was one of the last to show California as an island. His atlas “A New Sett of Maps both of Antient and Present Geography” was published in 1700.
