Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville (1697 - 1782)

D'Anville was a French cartographer of great repute. Following the death of De Lisle, D'Anville continued the line of progressive French cartographers which had begun with Nicolas Sanson in the previous century. A child prodigy, he is said to have designed his first map at the age of fifteen and in his long distinguished career he produced a large number of elegantly engraved maps, noted for their scholarship and accuracy. Having exacting standards soon brought him international recognition as the finest cartographer of his time.
