Weinstraße, Mosbach, Würzburg, Limburg, Löwenstein, Stuttgart ///////// SEHR SELTEN //////////// Alexis Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712) followed Nicholas Sanson (1600-1667) and his descendants in ushering in the great age of French Cartography in the late 17th and 18th centuries. After the fire that destroyed the preeminent Blaeu firm in 1672, the publishing center of the cartographic world gradually transitioned from Amsterdam to Paris. It was published in Paris by Jean-Claude Dezauche. Hubert Jaillot who was trained as a sculptor, married the daughter of the owner of a lucrtative map & print publishing enterprise, Nicholas Berey and inherited the business upon his death. When Nicholas Sanson, the premier French cartographer of the day, died, Jaillot negotiated with his heirs to republish much of Sanson's work with little modification to the originals. Jaillot's maps were particularly beautiful with their elaborate and meaningful allegorical cartouches and other decorative elements. In 1686 Jaillot was awarded the title of Geographe du Roi. His most famous works include the "Atlas Nouveau - 1674" and "Atlas Français - 1695"
