Jerusalem by J. Boisseau. 1648

Jean Boisseau (flourished 1637-1658)

 Jean Boisseau, a prolific map editor, remains somewhat mysterious. He was mentioned for the first time in the Parisian archives in 1631: he was then described as a "master illuminator," a title from which he would never give up. A little later, in 1635, he became a "nautical chart illuminator." Finally, in 1636, he published several heraldry works, genealogy, and chronology.

At the same time, he had a few maps engraved. In 1641 he reissued Jean Leclerc's Theatre and published the Topographie françoise de Châtillon. The following year, he improved Leclerc's atlas, which became his own Théatre des Gaules. In 1643, he copied Mercator-Hondius' Atlas Minor for his small Trésor des cartes géographiques. Very active until 1648, the date of the publication of the Théatre des Citéz and the second edition of the Topographie.

Boisseau then disappeared without leaving any heirs. Jean Boissevin recovered part of his collection and reissued the Trésor in 1653 and the Topographie in 1655.
