Edward Stanford

Edward Stanford (1827-1904) was a publisher, engraver and founder of a “Geographical Establishment” in London. In 1857, he assumed control of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (S.D.U.K.). There he issued the “Family Atlas” (1857-75) and the “London Atlas” (1882), amongst many other publications. Edward was succeeded by his son, also Edward. The firm Stanford’s is still in existence today.
Stanford’s maps are highly regarded for their geographical accuracy and detail.
