Henry Teesdale was a London-based publisher of maps active in the first half of the nineteenth century. A founding fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, Teesdale produced large-scale maps and atlases. He is best-known for re-issuing Christopher Greenwood's 1818 map of Yorkshire (1828), the New British Atlas (1829-35) which was first published by Robert Rowe in 1816, and various world charts and atlases.
