Large folio map of the continent. A simple wreath-style title cartouche adorns this finely engraved map of Europe. The map is well detailed and extends from Iceland through the Caucasus region and shows the northern coast of Africa. The great age of French cartography originated with the work of Nicolas Sanson. His success was partly due to his partnership with the publisher Pierre Mariette. This map is by the elder Sanson, and should not be confused by his son's map of a few years later.
