Afrique. Divisee En Ses Grandes Regions ... : J. B. Nolin

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Lovely copperplate engraving, with original outline colour which appeared in a French edition of Baron Samuel von Puffendorf's 'Histoire Universelle'. Published in Paris 1758. J. B. Nolin set up the family publishing business in Paris in the Rue St Jacques where he engraved and sold a wide variety of maps, on some of which he wrongfully used the titles 'Engraver to the King' and 'Geographer to the Duke of Orleans'. On a complaint by Guillaume Delisle he was accused and convicted of plagiarism but his business continued to flourish. Many of his maps were based on the work of Vincenzo Coronelli, the Italian cartographer and of another French geographer, Sieur de Tillemon (Nicholas de Tralage). His most notable work was the publication in 1696 of a World Map on one sheet based on J. D. Cassini's 24-ft planisphere housed in the Paris Observatory. His son, also called, Jean Baptiste Nolin (1686-1762), continued the business for many years and prepared an Atlas General which was published posthumously in 1783.
