Francis Lamb was a prominent English engraver and mapmaker who operated from Newgate Street, London, in the latter half of the seventeenth-century. Lamb worked in conjunction with many of the most prominent English map publishers of the time including Richard Blome, John Ogilby, John Seller, Moses Pitt, and Captain Greenville Collins, amongst others. He also produced plates of Northern America which were included in the 1676 Basset and Chiswell edition of John Speed's 'A Prospect of the Most Famovs Parts of the World.' Though little is known of Lamb's personal life, he appears to have been a pupil of the British scientist Robert Hooke, based on numerous references to him in the Hooke’s journals, and Lamb’s engravings which appear in Hooke’s 'Micrographia' 1665.
