Robert Sayer was one of the leading publishers of his day. He acquired the large stock of both the Overton family and Thomas Jefferys, with whom he published a number of important maps of America. In 1775 he entered partnership with John Bennett, which lasted until 1786. Sayer continued alone, and later employed two assistants, Laurie and Whittle, who continued the business after his death in 1794.
