New Atlas for the traveller of the 17 Provinces of the Low-Countries… Geographer of the King. Sanson started his career as a historian where, it is said, he turned to cartography as a way to illustrate his historical studies. In the course of his research some of his fine maps came to the attention of King Louis XIII who, admiring the quality of his work, appointed Sanson’Geographe Ordinaire du Roi’. Sanson’s corpus of some three hundred maps initiated the golden age of French Cartography. Publisher: Pieter und David Mortier were booksellers in Paris and have published a wide range of geographical works. After Pieter’s death, his widow continued the business until their son Cornelius took over. Most likely this company was the largest map trader of his days.
