Tasmania and New South Wales by Rigobert Bonne. (Two maps) 1787-1788

Rigobert Bonne (1729-1795)

Rigobert Bonne was a French cartographer considered one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century.

He applied himself to physics, mathematics, geography, and for fifteen years, he was one of the most sought-after masters in Paris. Finally, in 1775, he succeeded Giovanni Rizzi-Zannoni as cartographer to the King of France in the Hydrographic Service of the Navy.
He produced maps for Father Raynal's works and the Methodical Encyclopedia of Nicolas Desmarest.

The work of Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal.
