Edmund Routledge
(30 January 1843 - 25 August 1899) was a book publisher.[1]

He was the second son of George Routledge, founder of the Routledge Publishing House. Following a private education, he entered the family business in 1859.[1]

He was also interested in politics, standing unsuccessfully for parliament on three occassions for the Liberal Party at North Kensington in 1886, North Paddington in 1887[2] and at Ayr Burghs in 1890.[3] When the London County Council was created in 1889, he became an one of the first aldermen as a member of the Progressive Party, serving until 1895.[1]
