A DATED ORIGINAL RIGOBERT BONNE COPPER PLATE MAP. FROM THE 18th CENTURY FRENCH ATLAS: GRENET – ATLAS PORTATIF Atlas portatif pour servir a l’intelligence des auteurs classiques. L’abbé Grenet professeur au Collège de Lisieux. Dédié à L’université de Paris. THIS IS AN ORIGINAL ENGRAVING OVER 200 YEARS OLD HAND COLOURED ON HAND MADE PAPER. The page measures approximately 14 1/2 inches x 10 1/2 inches (370mm x 270mm). This scarce map is a genuine 18th century original. Fine quality HAND MADE LAID PAPER. This attractive and important map was produced by Rigobert Bonne, a significant cartographer during the period of late 18th century. Original hand coloured detail. Titled with date of printing. This map will look superb when framed. A scarce and collectable investment. In 1773 Bonne succeeded Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to the King of France (Louis XV & Louis XVI) in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine.

Bonnes work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin.

1771 Antique Map of FRANCE Regions LORRAINE & ALSACE Champagne Souabe

1771 Antique Map of FRANCE Regions LORRAINE & ALSACE Champagne Souabe. A fine and rare original antique map titled. Carte des Gouvernment de Lorraine et D’Alsace. ATLAS MODERNE OU COLLECTION DE CARTES SUR TOUTES LES PARTIES DU GLBE TERRESTRE c1775. This is a beautiful example of Rigobert Bonne’s 1771 decorative map of the French winemaking regions of Alsace and Lorraine. Covers from Champagne east to Souabe, north to Luxembourg, and south to Switzerland. This region, which traded hands several times between France and Germany, is known for its exceptional cuisine, wines, and unique culture. Alsace is known for its fine white wines and along with Austria and Germany, this region produces the world’s most desirable dry Rieslings. This mountainous area of the Alsace wine region and is known for its production of both Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The region surrounding Strasbourg on the west bank of the Rhine River is known for producing Munster cheese. A beautifully engraved title cartouche adorns the lower right quadrant. In 1773 he succeeded Jacques Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the HYDROGRAPHER AT THE DEPOT DE LA MARINE. Working in his official capacity Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne’s work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as hand coloring, elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses. While mostly focusing on coastal regions, the work of Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal. Bonne would later become the Geographer to the King of France. 1743 – 1793 was a Paris based bookseller, engraver, and map publisher active in the mid to late 18th century. Lattre published a large corpus of maps, globes, and atlases in conjunction with a number of other important French cartographic figures, including Janvier, Zannoni, Bonne and Delamarche. He is also known to have worked with other European cartographers such as William Faden of London and the Italian cartographer Santini. Paris court records indicate that Lattre brought charges against several other period map publishers, including fellow Frenchman Desnos and the Italian map engraver Zannoni, both of whom he accused of copying his work. Lattre’s offices and bookshop were located at 20 rue St. Overall size of the map is 51cm x 39cm with large margins, perfect for mounting & framing CONDITION: Excellent overall condition with contemporary hand colouring and the usual centrefold, as issued. As would be expected with antique maps of nearly 250 years old, there will be some slight ageing and toning, but once mounted and framed, will not be noticable.
