Lislet Geoffroy was born on August 23, 1755 in Saint-Pierre, Réunion. The son of Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy a white, French engineer working in Mauritius (then called Ile de France) and a freed black slave from Guinea. At age 15, he entered the engineer corps and studied astronomy and mathematics becoming proficient in geology, geography and surveying. During his time in Mauritius he was appointed to survey both that island and the Seychelles. This map, with its inset detail of Port Louis, was the best of the time and engraved by London-based James Walker and published by William Faden. A well-used example, this map is lightly age-toned with minor spotting and an old ink inscription, nevertheless very acceptable.
