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. Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. 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. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses.
