Alexander Dalrymple was hydrographer to the East India Company (1779-1808) and to the Admiralty (1795-1808) and during his career published over nine hundred sea charts and over one hundred and fifty letterpress publications on subjects ranging from oriental antiquities to geographical exploration. His work formed the basis of British pre-eminence in nautical publication in the nineteenth century. This book, which includes the first comprehensive catalogue of Dalrymple's publications (both engraved and letterpress), describes Dalrymple's chart compilation and publishing practices and his relations with jobbing printers and engravers in London.
