Sanson, Nicolas 1600 – 1667. 23in x 18in (585mm x 475mm). (A) Very Good Condition. This original copper-plate engraved antique map of the Lorraine region of France was engraved by Louis Cordier in 1661 – dated – and was published by Nicholas Sanson in his atlas Cartes Generales de Toutes les Parties du Monde. Paper thickness and quality: – Heavy and stable Paper color : – off white Age of map color: – Original Colors used: – Yellow, green, pink, orange General color appearance: – Authentic Paper size: – 23in x 18in (585mm x 475mm) Plate size: – 20in x 17in (510mm x 415mm) Margins: – Min 1/2in (12mm). Margins: – None Plate area: – None Verso: – Small restoration along centerfold. Background: Lorraine is a cultural and historical region in north-eastern France, now located in the administrative region of Grand Est. Lorraines name stems from the medieval kingdom of Lotharingia, which in turn was named for either Emperor Lothair I or King Lothair II. It later was ruled as the Duchy of Lorraine before the Kingdom of France annexed it in 1766. Sanson, Nicolas 1600 – 1667 Sanson was a French cartographer, termed by some the creator of French geography, in which he\\\’s been called the father of French cartography. He was born of an old Picardy family of Scottish descent, at Abbeville, on 20 (or 31) December 1600, and was educated by the Jesuits at Amiens. In 1627 he attracted the attention of Richelieu by a map of Gaul which he had constructed (or at least begun) while only eighteen. Sanson was royal geographer. He gave lessons in geography both to Louis XIII and to Louis XIV; and when Louis XIII, it is said, came to Abbeville, he preferred to be the guest of Sanson (then employed on the fortifications), instead of occupying the lodgings provided by the town. At the conclusion of this visit the king made Sanson a councillor of state. Active from 1627, Sanson issued his first map of importance, the Postes de France, which was published by Melchior Tavernier in 1632. After publishing several general atlases himself he became the associate of Pierre Mariette, a publisher of prints. In 1647 Sanson accused the Jesuit Philippe Labbe of plagiarizing him in his Pharus Galliae Antiquae; in 1648 he lost his eldest son Nicolas, killed during the Fronde. Among the friends of his later years was the great Condé. He died in Paris on 7 July 1667. Two younger sons, Adrien d. 1708 and Guillaume d. 1703, succeeded him as geographers to the king. In 1692 Hubert Jaillot collected Sansons maps in an Atlas nouveau. Paris: Chez Pierre Mariette, OCLC 32881783 Sanson, Nicolas (1658), Cartes générales de toutes les parties du monde, Paris: P. Mariette, OCLC 11510414 – Tables geographiques des divisions du globe terrestre (1677). Please note all items auctioned are genuine, we do not sell reproductions. A Certificate of Authenticity (COA) can be issued on request. What is an Antique Map. The word Antique in the traditional sense refers to an item that is more than a hundred years old. The majority of antique maps for sale today come from books or atlases and have survived due to the protection offered by the hardback covers. The first thing to determine when staring a collection or purchasing an item, is what is important to you. Most collectors prefer to build their collections around a theme. You may decide to collect maps from one region or country, charting its development through time. Similarly you could collect maps of one particular period in time, by type i. Sea or celestial charts or by cartographer. The collector might also want to consider the theme of cartographical misconceptions such as California as an island or Australia as Terra Australis or the Great Southern Land. The subject is so wide that any would-be-collector has almost endless possibilities to find his own little niche within the field, and thereby build a rewarding collection. Starting a collection & pricing. Pricing is based on a number of different factors, the most important of which is regional. In any series of maps the most valuable are usually the World Map and the America/North America. The World because it is usually the most decorative and America because it has the strongest regional market. Other factors that come into play re: price is rarity, age, size, historical importance, decorative value (colour) and overall condition and quality of paper it is printed on. As specialised dealers, we frequently work with first time map buyers who are just starting their collection.

Title of the map. “CARTE DES RIVIERES DE LA FRANCE Curieusement Recherchée par Nicolas Sanson Ing & Geogr ord du Roy Avec Privilege du Roy 1641″. The concept of hydrological mapping was unknown at the time of the publication of this map, and we were unable to find an earlier example of a map that shows as well the rivers of France. Crossing points are also shown for the rivers which would have proved important for understanding the defensive capabilities of various regions. The 5 important rivers (Seine, Loire, Rhone, Rhin, Garonne) are represented in different colors. The map extends from southern England, Flanders, Switzerland, and northern Italy. In upper right side, some text explains the purpose of this map. Sanson defends his map as exactingly precise, and states that many of the rivers found here are unlikely to be found on national or even regional maps. Sanson was the first mapmaker of the golden age of French cartography and his maps are prized for their exacting standards and attractive qualities. Born in Abbeville, active from 1627. Nicolas Sanson d’Abbeville was to bring about the rise of French cartography, although the fierce competition of the Dutch would last until the end of the century.
