Description:

C18th map by Rigorbet Bonne (1727-1794) extending from Africa to Australia with arrows showing the directions of the prevailing winds and ocean currents, focusing on the trade to the Indies from Europe. A decorative title is at top left and at lower centre is an inset map of southern India and Ceylon.

Rigorbet Bonne (1727 - 1794)

Bonne was an important French cartographer active in the later part of the C18th. In 1773 Bonne succeeded Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine. Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne’s work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic.
