Carte Generale Des Rouyame D'Angleterre Escosse Et Irlande : N. Sanson

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Attractive example of Nicolas Sanson's double page map of the British Isles from 1640, engraved by Melchior Tavernier and published by Pierre Mariette, whose imprint in the top right cartouche indicates this as the second state of the map. The map is well detailed with counties defined by outline colour and Ireland and Scotland rather unusually sized, due in part, to the projection used by Sanson. This map was much copied by other French publishers and also by Richard Blome (in London) in 1669. Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667) is generally acknowledged as the founder of the great French school of geographers and cartographers that supplanted the Dutch as the leading European map-makers. His work was acclaimed for its geographical accuracy and high standard of engraving. As a consequence, his many maps received a wide diffusion. His career marks the start of the process by which Paris superseded Amsterdam as the centre of European map production. A good example in a fine, early, print impression.
