Nathaniel Whittock (January 26, 1791 - August 12, 1860) was an English landscape, map, and topographical engraver active in London in the first half of the 19th century. He was best known for aerial perspective Bird's-eye Views with several important views of English and English Colonial cities in his corpus. Whittock was born in Westminster. His early education is mired in obscurity, but from 1824, he appears as 'Teacher of Drawing and Perspective, and Lithographist to the University of Oxford' - a significant posting. He worked for academic community of Oxford, publishing several views for the Ashmolean Museum. In 1828, he relocated to London, setting up shop in partnership with Edward Goodman as 'Whittock and Goodman'. This relationship was formally bought out by Whittock and dissolved on November 212, 1829. By the early 1830s, he was established in his own lithography studio at 24 Garnault Place, Spa Fields, Islington, London. In 1848, he partnered with his cousin Henry Hyde, relocating his operations to 34 Richard Street, Islington. This relationship lasted until his death in 1860.
