Jean-Baptiste Nolin ( 1686 - 1762)

Jean-Baptiste Nolin (1686–1762), was the son of Jean-Baptiste Nolin (c. 1657–1708) who had trained with the famous engraver François de Poilly, which caught the attention of the Italian cartographer Vincenzo Coronelli, who invited him to engrave his own maps. In 1694 Nolin was named geographer to the Duke of Orléans (Philippe II), and in 1701 was named engraver to King Louis XIV. Nolin set up a family publishing house on Rue Saint-Jacques, Paris. Many of Nolin’s maps were based on previous works by Coronelli and the amateur geographer Jean-Nicholas de Tralage, known as Sieur de Tillemon, who supplied him with most of his material. In 1700, Nolin published Le Globe Terreste, a world wall map measuring 125×140 cm.
