North America (Northeast), by A.M. Mallet. 1685

Allain Manesson Mallet (1630-1706)

Allain Manesson Mallet was born the son of Philippe Mallet in 1630. His father was an ingénieur ordinaire to Louis XIV and a professor of mathematics around 1645. Allain, at first, carried muskets to the regiment of guards of Louis XIV and then became an engineer like his father. Later becoming a sergeant-major of artillery, he travelled extensively in Spain and Portugal, supervising the fortifications there. On his return to France, he was named master of mathematics. In 1671 he published the Travaux de Mars, a book on military fortifications. He followed in 1683 with the work concerned here, the Description de L'Univers, a five-volume geographical text covering all aspects of the subject. It was heavily illustrated with nearly 700 prints and maps. (Burden)
