George Thompson (June 17, 1758 – February 15, 1826) was a British stationer, printer, and map publisher active in London in the late 18th and early 19th century. Thompson was born in London, the son of a butcher. He apprenticed with William Morgan of the Stationers Guild in 1773. Thompson produced few maps, all of which were separately issued broadsides. Around 1798 – 1799 he appears to have issued a series of large format broadside map of the world and continents. All George Thompson maps are extremely rare today. Thompson was succeeded by his son, George Nathaniel Thompson, after his death in 1834. Although Thompson published few maps, the size of his fortune at death, nearly 70,000 GPB suggests that he was a highly successful printer and stationer.
