¤ AN UNRECORDED "COASTING PILOT", published by Jeremiah Seller & Charles Price. The title page of this maritime atlas reads : "The Coasting Pilot... Collected and published by John Seller. Printed for Jer : Seller and Cha : Price Hydrographers at y Hermitage Stairs in Wapping.".
John Seller Sr. (d.1697) is one of the most important figures in the early history of the map and chart-publishing trade in England. He was the first Englishman to try establish an atlas-publishing business comparable with continental firms, such as Blaeu, Janssonius, de Wit, Goos, Colom & Doncker.
Jeremiah Seller (1675-1720) was the son of John Seller, and was also a mapmaker, instrument-maker and publisher. Jeremiah Seller and his partner, Charles Price, were "Hydrographers to ye Queen" and "Compass makers to the Navy Royall.", their partnership ended in bankruptcy in 1706. In partnership with Price, Jeremiah published in 1701 "The Fifth Part of the General English Pilot …".
