James Imray & Son

James Imray (May 16, 1803 – November 15, 1870) was a Scottish chartmaker and publisher whose firm produced an extensive list of so-called ‘blue-backed charts’ and pilot books. His son, James Frederick Imray, joined the firm in 1854, at which time it became known as James Imray & Son, which continued to publish charts after its founder’s death.
