His earliest known work is a map of the Canal of Languedoc in 1669. Arguably his most famous production is his wall map of America, published in 1698. It is renowned for the beaver scene. From 1690 he began publishing his own books such as ‘Les Forces de l’Europe’, and the ‘Petit et Nouveau Atlas’ in 1697. His first wall map, in 1694, was naturally of the world, and this was followed by a set of four continents. After his death in 1720, the business ultimately passed to two sons-in-law, Guillaume Danet, and Jacques-Francois Bénard. Provenance: Doreen Green 2005; private English collection.
