Biography:

Alexis Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712)

Jaillot was born near Saint Claude in Franche Comte, but moved to Paris in 1657. Originally a sculptor, he took up engraving and cartography after marrying Jeanne, daughter of Nicholas Berey (1606-1665), the publisher, map seller and Enlumineur de la Reine. He quickly established a reputation for his ability and business acumen and was chosen by the sons and heirs of Nicholas Sanson to infuse new life into their business. Jaillot proceeded to re-engraved Sanson’s maps on a larger scale and these began to appear from 1674 onwards. After the collapse of the Blaeu map publishers empire, following the fire of 1672 which destroyed the company’s premises Paris became the centre of European map making. 

In 1676 Jaillot was appointed Geographie du Rou to Louise XIV.
