AUTHENTICITY
Le Royaume De Hongrie - Antique Map from 1755

Genuine antique
dated:

1755

Description:

Detailed C18th map of the Kingdom of Hungary.

Mapmaker:

Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726)

Leading French cartographer of the C18th who was re known for the accuracy of his maps.

He studied under Jean Cassini and from an early age showed his talent. At the age of 27 Delisle was admitted to the Academie Royale des Sciences and by 1718 he had been made the Royal Geographer. His maps reflect his scientific approach to map making by including the most up to date cartographic information as well as the use of new astronomical information. Where he was unable to verify information conclusively, he would note the fact on his maps.
