Gerard van Keulen (1678–1726) was the son of Johannes van Keulen (d. 1715), founder of the Dutch publishing house that produced "the largest and finest marine atlases in Holland". Gerard possessed mathematical, scientific, and engraving skills that enabled him to build the firm started by his father into a substantial and respected business venture. (C. Koeman.
