Northern Africa, by Francesco Santini. 1776-79

Francesco and Paolo Santini (c.1729-1793)

Francesco Santini, a Venetian publisher, acquired the printing plates of Vaugondy’s Atlas Universel …, a commercial and cartographic success, with widespread influence on mapmakers throughout Europe. Together with his brother Paolo, he commissioned a new set of plates and reissued the atlas in 1776. The following year, Paolo Santini assigned all his publication rights to M. Remondini, who in 1777 reissued the same atlas but with his name.


Gilles and Didier Robert de Vaugondy

Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688-1766) and his son Didier Robert de Vaugondy (1723-1786) were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century. They served both as geographer to the king of France. The father, Gilles is also known as ‘Le Sieur’ or ‘Monsieur Robert’. He descended from the Nicolas Sanson family through Sanson's grandson Pierre Moulard-Sanson, from whom he inherited Sanson's cartographic material. After Hubert Jaillot died in 1712, the de Vaugondy's acquired numerous copies of his maps and plates, which formed the basis of their beautiful Atlas Universel (1757).
Their business flourished from 1731 to 1778. They made a substantial contribution to the world of cartography.


Jean-Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville (1697 -1782)

French geographer and cartographer to the king. He made more than 200 maps during his life. His maps remained the reference point in cartography throughout the 19th century.
