***

Original hand colored map of Europe from 1829. Detailed map of Italy, with the Gulf of Venice, Corsica, Sardinia and Sicily done in a manner and engraving style quite unique to this era of cartographic knowledge and skill.
Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688-1766) and his son Didier were descended from the N. Sanson family and they inherited much of Sanson’s cartographic material. They were highly skilled engravers who placed an emphasis upon accurate and precise visual descriptions over the more commonly encountered tendency towards decoration and imaginary (unsubstantiated) geography. 
Map was the part of Nouvel Atlas Portatif.

Engraved by: E. Dussy.
