Profile :  
Following the death of one of the 18th centuries most prominent cartographers, Thomas Jeffery’s in 1771 William Faden took over and continued the business, trading as Faden & Jeffery’s and producing excellent maps well into the 19th century. He was particularly interested in the mapping of North America for which he was as well known as his predecessor. In addition to the many atlases produced, he also issued many special collections of large scale and regional maps prepared for customers individual requirements. All his work was of splendid quality and he was chosen to print four sheets of the First Ordinance Survey map – of Kent – that was published in 1801. His business was taken over by James Wyld who re-issued many of his maps.
