Copper engraving portrait of Alexis Hubert Jaillot (ca. 1632- 1712) holding a folio atlas in right hand and compass in left, more books behind. Engraved by Cornelis Martinus Vermeulen (1644 – 1708) a Flemish Baroque engraver. After a painting of Culin.

Jaillot followed Nicholas Sanson (1600 – 1667) and his descendents in ushering in the great age of French Cartography in the late 17th and 18th century.
The publishing center of the cartographic world gradually transitioned from Amsterdam to Paris following the disastrous inferno that destroyed the preeminent Blaeu firm in 1672. Hubert Jaillot's was born in Franche-Comte and trained as a sculptor. When he married the daughter of the enlumineur de ala Reine, Nicholas Berey, he found himself positioned to inherit a lucrative map and print publishing firm.
When Nicholas Sanson, the premier French cartographer of the day, died Jaillot negotiated with his heirs to republish much of Sanson's work. A number of Sanson’s maps had been prepared but never published and others were in need of revision, so Jaillot began the process of preparing new maps on larger plates.
These were published in the “Atlas Nouveau”, published from 1681 onwards, although individual maps date from 1672. Tooley wrote, “Jaillot’s maps are in large and handsome format, finely printed on the best paper, the titles and scale of miles with elaborate and large cartouches, usually depicting the characteristic costumes and products of the country delineated ...”. Individual atlases were coloured to meet the customer’s wishes, and some maps were involved in full and bright wash colour, which Fordham describes as “the finest specimens extant of this decorative art”. Jaillot used his allegorical cartouche work to extol the virtues of the Sun King Louis IV, and his military and political triumphs.
These earned him the patronage of the French crown who used his maps in the tutoring of the young Dauphin. In 1686 he was awarded the title of Geographe du Roi and with it significant prestige and the coveted yearly stipend of 600 Livres.
Jaillot was one of the last of a generation of French map makers to acquire this title. Louis XV, after taking the throne, replaced the position with the more prestigious and singular title of Premier Geographe du Roi.

Jaillot died in Paris in 1712. His most important work was his 1693 Le Neptune Francois.
