Unusual and nice antique engraved wall map of Picardie, in northern France. LE GOUVERNEMENT GENERAL DE PICARDIE ou sont LE PAYS RECONQUIS, LE BOULENOIS, LE PONTHIEU, L’AMIENOIS, LE SANTERRE, LE VERMANDOIS, ET LE TIERRASCHE Dressé sur les mémoires les plus Nouveaux et PRESENTE A MONSEIGNEUR LE DAUPHIN Par sin tres-humble, tres-obeissant, et tres fidele serviteur H. A PARIS, chez H. JAILLOT, joignant les grands Augustins aux 2 Globes, Avec privilege du Roy, pour vingt Ans, 1681. The map is decorated with two nice cartouches. The map extends from Dieppe in west to Phillipeville in east, and Dunkerque in north to Noyon in south. In many ways, Alexis-Hubert Jaillot is seen as the cartographer who continued the endeavour begun by Nicolas Sanson of improving the quality of French mapmaking. He was born in Franche-Comté around 1632, and with his brother Simon he travelled in 1657 to Paris to work. Alexis-Hubert’s future was determined largely by his marriage to Jeanne Berey in 1664, the daughter of Nicolas Berey, a merchant of engravings. Alexis-Hubert found himself drawn into the business following the deaths of his father-in-law the following year, and his brother-in-law Nicolas II in 1667. From the latter’s widow, Alexis-Hubert Jaillot and his wife acquired the geographical parts of the business. The idea for L’ Atlas Nouveau began before 1670; it was a big larger format of Sanson’s successful work. However, Alexis-Hubert had to return to Guillaume and Adrien Sanson, the sons of Nicolas, to provide the necessary capital to begin the project; The initial contract committed the brothers Sanson to provide eighteen maps, including this one. Further contracts followed over the years. By 1681, Jaillot had enough material to publish L’Atlas Nouveau. With the destruction of the Blaeu family business by fire in 1672, and the general lack of other competition, a ready market for a quality atlas had grown. Further editions appeared in 1684 and 1689. The relationship between Hubert Jaillot and the Sanson brothers, appears to have broken down altogether by 1690. In that year, Pierre Mortier began a work with an edition in Amsterdam. It is known that he had permission to do this and it is presumed to have been with Jaillot, rather than the Sansons. The latter’s editions appears in eighteen century. Jaillot died in 1712 and the business was largely passed to his son, Bernard-Jean-Haycinthe, and then, to his son, Bernard-Antoine. Edition : A Paris, chez H.
