1650 1703 was an English bookseller, publisher, and maker of maps and globes. He was among the first successful commercial map makers. Between about 1675 and his death in 1703, he was based under the sign of the Atlas at premises in Cornhill and New Cheapside, London. His cartographical output was large and varied. His best-known maps are those of South Wales, North Wales and the English Counties first published in a new edition of Camden's "Britannia" in 1695, and subsequently reissued in 1722, 1753 and 1772.

These maps were based on new information from gentlemen of each county and were newly engraved. Each had a decorated cartouche and showed numerous place names. Morden also produced in 1701 a series of smaller county maps often known as Miniature Mordens. He is also known for several very rare early maps of the British colonies in North America, which are now among the earliest and most sought-after maps for collectors of old American maps.

He also produced a series of miniature maps of the world, which appeared in both playing card format and in a series of atlases, including his Atlas Terrestris and Geography Anatomiz'd, beginning in 1687.
