Max Williams (September 9, 1865 - December 5, 1927) was a German-American publisher and collector, active in New York City at the turn of the century. While he published the work of contemporaneous artists such as Robert Welcke, he is generally best known for his republishing of earlier works, in particular from Currier and Ives' original lithographic stones (Williams purchased the contents of Currier and Ives' shop upon its closing.) Williams was also apparently a collector of marine art himself, keeping a museum of nautical prints and exhibiting them to a public nostalgic for the age of sail.
