Made by ‘Andre’ after ‘R. Bonne’. Rigobert Bonne (1727-1795 ) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century. In 1773 he succeeded Jacques Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depot de la Marine. Working in his official capacity Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period.
