Carte de l'Egypte Ancienne et Moderne, dressée sur Celle du R.P. Sicard et autres, assujetties aux observations astronomiques, par le Sr. Robert de Vaugondy A VenicePar P. Santini 1779 Chez Mr. Remondini. Description: Striking and hightly detailed copper engraved map of the Nile River valley with superb detail of cities, towns, villages, monasteries, canals, pyramids, mosques, ruins and much more. Across the Red Sea are details of where the Children of Israel wandered in the deserts of Sinai. The map is decorated with a large title cartouche, featuring the pyramids and the Sphinx. The map represents a Venetian edition of Robert de Vaugondy's map from "Atlas Universel" printed in 1776-84 by Remondini. Date: 1779( undated ) Dimension: Paper size approx.: cm53,1 x 75,6 Condition: Very strong and dark impression onvery strong paper. Paper with chains and wiremarks.Original colors to the outlines. Wide margins. Smallfoxing and browning. Map folded as issued. Conditions are as you can see in the images. Mapmaker: Gilles (1688 - 1766) and Didier (c. 1723 - 1786) Robert de Vaugondy were map publishers, engravers, and cartographers active in Paris during the mid-18th century. The father and son team are descended from the important Sanson cartographic firm, from whom they inherited much of their initial material. The Vaugondys were well respected for the detail and accuracy of their maps. They were known for making excellent use of the considerable resources available in 18th century Paris to produce the most accurate and fantasy-free maps possible. The Vaugondys compiled their maps based upon their own superior geographic knowledge, scholarly research, the journals of contemporary explorers and missionaries, and direct astronomical observation. Many Vaugondy maps are also highly praised for their title cartouches, which identify each of the sources referenced - an unusual level of scholar decorum for 18th century France. Their most important work is the beautifully produced Atlas Universel. Cartographer:Jean or Robert Janvier (fl. 1746 - 1776) was a Paris based cartographer active in the mid to late 18th century. Janvier true first name is a matter of debate, as it appears as it often appears as either Jean or Robert. More commonly, Janvier simply signed his maps Signor Janvier. By the late 18th century Janvier seems to have been awarded the title of "Geographe Avec Privilege du Roi" and this designations appears on many of his latter maps. Janvier worked with many of the most prominent French, English and Italian map publishers of his day, including Faden, Lattre, Bonne, Santini, Zannoni, Delamarche, and Desnos. http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remondini View My response View My Other Items For Sale
