BIOGRAPHIE :
Major publisher, map- and print-seller. The firm traded under a series of names each of which has a separate entry on the Biographical Authority; the name entered in a catalogue entry corresponds with that given on a print. N.B. Susanna Fisher's study of Robert Sayer and his successors has added much information to earlier sources. Address : on very early prints "near Serjeants Inn, Fleet Street" Golden Buck, opposite Fetter Lane, Fleet Street, London (the old Philip Overton shop and sign) 53 Fleet Street (a few doors east of the Golden Buck; Sayer moved there in 1760, according to Susanna Fisher, but the premises would not have been numbered until c. 1766) (britishmuseum.org)
