Ottoman Empire by Hugo Allard. c. 1661

The Allard Family

The founder of this family of map-makers, publishers and print-sellers was Huych (Hugo) Allard (1625-1691). He worked in Amsterdam in 1684, and he is supposed to have begun his business as early as 1645. He died in 1691, leaving his shop to his son, Carel Allard (1648-c. 1706). Carel brought out many maps and some atlases. His atlases are mainly composed of maps from the stock of other publishers like Janssonius and De Wit. However, some maps were his original creations. For these maps, the States of Holland granted him a privilege in 1683.
One of the sons of Carel, Abraham Allard (1676-c.1730), joined his father in the map trade and was accepted as a member of the ‘Constvercoopers gilde’ (Art dealer’s Guild) in 1708.
The original geographical maps by Allard, designed and cut between 1680 and 1700, are very decorative, well-composed and up-to-date.
