Southern Netherlands (Belgium) by Laurie & Whittle. 1796

Laurie & Whittle  (flourished 1794-1812)

The Laurie family were chart, map and print publishers in London.

Robert Laurie (1755-1836) apprenticed to Robert Sayer as a mezzotint engraver. Around 1790, when the company became known as Robert Sayer & Co, he was recorded as becoming his assistant along with James Whittle. When Sayer died in 1794, Robert Laurie and James Whittle succeeded in his business interest by buying the entire stock from Sayer's son James. Robert continued with Laurie and Whittle until 1812.

Laurie & Whittle re-issued many of the Sayer publications under their own imprint; however, with the help of cartographer Louis Delarochette, hydrographer John Purdy, and others, the company also produced several new sets of maps and charts.
