FRANCE CARTE GENERALE DU ROYAUME DE FRANCE

Code: M2591

Cartographer: SANSON Nicolas

Date: 1643 Paris

Size: 41*52 cms

Rare map of France by Sanson but published by Tavernier.This appears to be the first published edition of Sanson's map and is dated 1643 on the map.I can find very little information on this map and it might have been included in a later composite atlas.Some minor blemish in otherwise good condition.

Uncoloured as issued.

Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667) was born in Abbeville, where as a young man he studied history, particularly of the ancient world. At the age of 18 he was said to have compiled his first map. After he moved to Paris the King appointed him 'Geographe Ordinaire du Roi', one of his duties being to tutor the King in geography.

Melchior Tavernier was Paris most active publisher of prints and maps in the beginning of the 17th century. Sanson published his first separate map and atlas of France and Europe with Tavernier.

For unexplained reasons Melchior Tavernier retired trade in 1644.
