It has a large decorative title cartouche with eight different distance scales used by various nations. A large inset at the upper left shows the island of Iceland. Engraved by G. de la Haye. Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d’Anville (July 11, 1697-January 28, 1782) was a French geographer and cartographer who greatly improved the standards of map-making. From an early age d’Anville continued the reform of French cartography begun by Guillaume Delisle, but he was also a reputable classical scholar, and many of his memoirs and maps relate to ancient and medieval geography. He displayed exceptional judgement in his choice and use of past authorities and a detailed knowledge of measures of distance. He also adjusted his measurements where possible to astronomically determined positions. His Atlas Général, first published in 1743, was frequently revised. D’Anville was appointed first geographer to the king of France in 1773. Condition: Good. Light age toning, some bumping and minor closed tears to edges. Significant wear to upper portion of the map, which has been professionally restored. Dimensions w 40.25 in x h 28 7/8 in.
