Andrew Dury was a British map-maker and print publisher who operated out of Duke’s Court on St. Martin’s Lane in London during the second half of the 18th century. Even though he was an accomplished cartographer with major commissions, he never reached the level of success attained by contemporaries such as Thomas Jefferys or William Faden. Consequently, his beautiful maps have become quite rare and are today sought-after collectors’ items.

Dury’s name is normally associated with Major James Rennell’s large India maps, but he was also responsible for Revolutionary War-era plans of Boston and Philadelphia, as well as a series of maps related to the Russo-Turkish War of 1768-74.
