A scarce and collectable investment.Please email with any questions regarding this itemIn 1773 Bonne succeeded Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to the King of France (Louis XV & Louis XVI) in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine. Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne’s work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses.
