Map title "Novissima totius terrarum orbis tabula. Auctore Joh. Seller, hydrographo regio". Author - John Seller(1658-1698). Original in the Library of Congress. Facsimile. Relief shown pictorially. Made for The Sea Atlas, published in London, 1675. Insets: Incrementum et decrementum die. Phasis lunae naturalis. Hypothesis Tychonican. Hypothesis Ptolomaica. Phasis lunae artificialis. Hypothesis Copernicana. John Seller was a pioneering British publisher of nautical charts and one of the most important figures in the early history of British cartography. Seller's shop, located near the Tower of London in Wapping, became a gathering place for seamen arriving with the latest news of distant places such as the West Indies and provided Seller with information critical to his nautical chart business. In addition to sea charts he produced a vast array of cartographic material. Seller was appointed Royal Hydrographer by Charles II in 1671, and also served under James II and William III. His English Pilot was a very ambitious project, being the first attempt by an Englishman to compete with the dominant Dutch sea atlases, led by Waghenaer's Mariner's Mirror.
