Hand painted

Sheet size 25x35 cm, from “Atlas de toutes les parties connues du globe terrestre”. Rigobert Bonne (1737-1795) was one of the leading cartographers in the late 18th century. As "hydrographer" at the French "Depôt de la Marine", R. Bonne was able to visit various locations around the world and draw the respective maps. Bonne completed the most modern and detailed maps of his time, and to him we owe the transition from ancient French cartography, focused on decorative embellishment, to modern cartography, inclined to greater detail precision.
