Humphrey Phelps (fl. c. 1830 - 1860) was an American map, broadside, and book publisher based in New York City. Phelps' earliest work seems to be a plan of New York City for his Stranger's Guide, dating to about 1830. The New York map publishing circle seems to have been quite close and Phelps commonly partnered with various other New York publishers and printers including Ensign, Thayer, Bridgman, Fanning, Hooker, Peabody, Magnus, and Walker, among others. The natural consequence of his rampant partnering is a vast and varied corpus of work including many scarce items with low print runs. Phelps is best known for his emigrant and tourist guides.
