Reynolds produced an enormous number of all types of maps as well as a wide variety of other cartographic material and music over a career spanning approximately thirty years. He advertised as bookseller, copper-plate printer, and print-seller, and his business lived on as James Reynolds & Sons into the twentieth century under his sons William Henry and Frederick, with his daughter, Alice Mary, working as chromolithographic artist. Many of Reynolds's works were engraved by John Emslie (1813-75), who was elected to the Royal Geographical Society in 1863. (See The Victorian Maps of Devon online). N. B.
