Edward Stanford (1827-1904) was a British publisher and cartographer, and founder of Stanford's Ltd. In the mid 1850's, Stanford founded his business in response to rapid British colonial expansion and the demand for accurate, high-quality, and accessible maps that resulted. As well as producing his own maps, Stanford also reprinted a number of other series, including the popular maps of principle cities by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. Stanford's son, also named Edward, succeeded his father in 1884.
