George Philip and Son, a British publishing house, one of the oldest in the United Kingdom. The company, specializing in maps and atlases, was founded in 1834. In 1852 a London house was opened at 32 Fleet Street, to promote sales of the firm's geographical and educational publications at home and abroad. The firm grew rapidly, helped by new technology — notably power-driven lithographic presses and the machine-colouring of maps. (Online)
