North America by Robert de Vaugondy. 1748

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.
