1732 fue un cartógrafo, grabador y editor. Moll se trasladó a Inglaterra en 1678 y abrió una librería de mapas en Londres. A veces realizaba mapas utilizando los estudios procedentes del trabajo de otros cartógrafos.
Moll was probably born in Bremen, Germany, around 1654. He moved to London to escape the Scanian Wars.
His earliest work was as an engraver for Moses Pitt on the production of the English Atlas, a failed work which landed Pitt in debtor's prison. He published his first original maps in the early 1680s and had set up his own shop by the 1690s. Moll's circle included the scientist Robert Hooke, the archaeologist William Stuckley, the authors Jonathan Swift and Daniel Defoe, and the intellectually-gifted pirates William Dampier, Woodes Rogers and William Hacke. From these contacts, Moll gained a great deal of privileged information that was included in his maps. Over the course of his career, he published dozens of geographies, atlases, and histories, not to mention numerous sheet maps.
His most famous works are Atlas Geographus, a monthly magazine that ran from 1708 to 1717, and The World Described (1715-54). He also frequently made maps for books, including those of Dampiers publications and Swifts Gullivers Travels. It is likely that his plates passed to another contemporary, Thomas Bowles, after this death. A New Map of the Whole World with the Trade Winds according to ye latest and most exact observations.
