Biography:

Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703 – 1772)

The French multifaceted hydrographer and geographer had an incredibly
successful 50 year career producing maps. His illustrious career
started at just 18 years of age when he was appointed Chief Cartographer
to the French Navy in 1721. His attention to detail, accuracy and high
standard of workmanship resulted in him playing an integral role to
France’s leadership in European cartography.  In addition to being the
Chief Cartographer of France’s hydrographic office, he was also a member
of the Académie de Marine, the Royal Society of London, and the Philosophes (a French intellectual group).
