From Cassini’s atlas, Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale Delineato Sulle Ultime Osservazione
cartographer active in the later part of the 18th and early 19th
century. Not to be confused with the un-related well known French
cartographic family of the same name, Cassini is best known as a globe
maker and is considered the last of the great 18th century globe
makers. Unlike many map and atlas publishers of the period, Cassini did
all of his own engraving work.
