Herman Moll (1654? – 22 September 1732), was a London
cartographer, engraver, and publisher.
Moll's exact place of origin is unknown, although his birth year
is generally accepted to be the year 1654. He moved to England in
1678 and opened a book and map store in London. He produced maps
from his studies of the work of other cartographers.
Until his death, he produces numerous maps, books, atlases and
globes. Moll's maps were in his lifetime and after very
influential, and are still among the most sought after aesthetic
engravings in the history of cartography.
