Samuel Lewis (June 2, 1782 – February 28, 1865) was a British editor and publisher active in London, England, during the first half of the 19th century. Nothing of significance is known of Lewis's early life; however, he was most likely of humble birth and had little formal education. He was successfully involved in an important lawsuit against another English map publisher, Archibald Fullerton, which laid a significant precedent for future copyright cases. Lewis is best known for his topographical dictionaries of the British Isles; however he also produced numerous other maps including wall maps, case maps, and general atlases. Samuel Lewis and Company had several offices in and around London: 13 Coleman Street (1829 - 1830), 87 Aldersgate Street (1831-1840), 87 Hatton Garden (1842), 13 Finsbury Place (1846), and 19 Compton Terrace, Islington (1851-1865). Samuel Lewis of London should not be confused with another more important cartographer of the same name based in the United States.
