Jean-Guillaume Barbie du Bocage (1795 - 1848)

Bocage was a well known French map maker and publisher. Jean Denis Barbie du Bocage (1760 - 1825) and his son Jean-Guillaume Barbie du Bocage (1795 - 1848) were French cartographers and cosmographers. Jean was a student of d'Anville and friend of Bartholomew and was first attached to the cabinet of medals from the Library of King (1785). He was appointed Geographer of the Department of External Relations (1803), member of the Institute (1806), and finally professor of geography at the Faculty of Arts of Paris (1809). He influenced many Parisian cartographers and publishers of the time.
