Map maker : JAILLOT, H. / SANSON, N..
Date : Paris, 1696 - 1720.
Size : 22.0 x 16.7 inches. / 56.0 x 42.5 cm.
Colouring : Coloured

Description :Detailed map of Germany and part of Luxemburg. Figurative title cartouche with two putti as well as a ribboned scale cartouche.
Nicolas Sanson (1600–1667) was a French cartographer, wrongly termed by some the creator of French geography. He was born of an old Picardy family of Scottish descent, at Abbeville, on the 20th (or 31st) of December 1600, and was educated by the Jesuits at Amiens.
In 1627 he attracted the attention of Richelieu by a map of Gaul which he had constructed (or at least begun) while only eighteen. He gave lessons in geography both to Louis XIII and to Louis XIV; and when Louis XIII, it is said, came to Abbeville, he preferred to be the guest of Sanson (then employed on the fortifications), instead of occupying the lodgings provided by the town. At the conclusion of this visit the king made Sanson a councillor of state.
Active from 1627, Sanson issued his first map of importance, the "Postes de France", which was published by Melchior Tavernier in 1632. After publishing several general atlases himself he became the associate of Pierre Mariette, a publisher of prints.
In 1647 Sanson accused the Jesuit Philippe Labbe of plagerizing him in his Pharus Galliae Antiquae; in 1648 he lost his eldest son Nicolas, killed during the Fonde. Among the friends of his later years was the great Conde. He died in Paris on 7 July 1667. Two younger sons, Adrien (d. 1708) and Guillaume (d. 1703), succeeded him as geographers to the king.
In 1692 Hubert Jaillot collected Sanson's maps in an “Atlas Nouveau”. See also the 18th century editions of some of Sanson's works on Delamrche under the titles of “Atlas de Géographie Ancienne” and “Atlas Britannique”; and the “Catalogue des cartes et livres de géographie de Sanson”. (1702).
Condition : in very good condition with several minor, professionally repaired margin tears.
