Laurie and Whittle (fl. 1794 - 1858) was a London, England based firm active in the late 18th and early 19th century. Generally considered to be the successors of the Robert Sayer firm, Laurie and Whittle was founded by Robert Laurie (c. 1755 - 1836) and James Whittle (1757-1818). Robert Laurie was a skilled mezzotint engraver and is known to have worked with Robert Sayer on numerous projects. James Whittle was a well known London socialite and print seller whose Fleet Street shop was a popular haunt for intellectual luminaries. The partnership began taking over the general management of Sayer's firm around 1787, however, did not alter the Sayer imprint until after Sayer's death in 1794. Apparently Laurie did most of the work in managing the firm and hence his name appeared first in the Laurie and Whittle imprint. Together Laurie and Whittle published numerous maps and atlases, often bringing in other important cartographers of the day, including Kitchin, Faden, Jefferys and others to update and modify their existing Sayer plates. Robert Laurie retired in 1812, leaving the day to day management of the firm to his son, Richard Holmes Laurie (1777 - 1858). Under R. H. Laurie and James Whittle, the firm renamed itself Whittle and Laurie. Whittle himself died in six years later in 1818, and thereafter the firm continued under the imprint of R. H. Laurie. After R. H. Laurie's death the firm and the printing stock came under control of. A. G. Findlay, who had long been connected to the Laurie and Whittle firm. Laurie and whittle has passed through numerous permeations. Part of the firm still exists today as Imray, Laurie, Norie and Wilson Ltd., an English publisher of maritime charts.
