Guillaume de l'Isle (1675 - †1726) The de L'Isle (Delisle) family was one of the most influential Geographers of the early 18th century in France. Claude de L'Isle, born 1644, had four sons, of which Guillaume was the most notable. Guillaume was born 1675 and became member of the "Académie Royale des Sciences" at the age of twenty-seven, and was honoured later with the title "Premier Géographe du Roi". Guillaume Delisle adopted entirely new principles in cartography and set about making a thorough reform in that subject. The map-publishers of the time did not know how to utilize the material supplied mainly by the French astronomers of the latter half of the seventeenth century, and Delisle recognized that the new methods of measuring by scale and of marking the places were very valuable for cartography; with this help he therefore produced a new and more accurate picture of the world. His largest project, the "Atlas de Géographie", was published until 1774 in Paris and Amsterdam (Covens and Mortier).
