L'Europe Dressée pour l'étude de la Geographie - Antique Map from 1786

Genuine antique
dated:

1786

Description:

Superbly decorated map of Europe with an ornate frame border and title cartouche.

From Desnos, Atlas General, Civil, Ecclesiatique et Militaire…., Paris.

Mapmaker:

Louis Brion De La Tour (fl 1756-1803)

Beyond the fact that Brion was an engineer by profession and held the post of Ingenieur-Geographe du Roi, little is known of his career. He published a wide range of statistical works and a number of atlases, published by the well known French mapmaker Louis Charles Desnos (1725-1805).
