FILII./Letetia Parisiorum./Apud PETRUM MARIETTE Via Iacobaea/Sub Signo Spei./CIƆ IƆC LXVII/Cum Privilegio ad Viginti Annos’.

An attractive late 17th century French map of Asia in original outline colour showing the ancient (classical) kingdoms and empires originally compiled by Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667), considered by many to be the founder of the French school of cartography that promoted scientific accuracy in mapping. This edition, however, as the cartouche states, was drawn by Guillaume Sanson (1633-1703), the son of Nicolas Sanson and the younger brother of Nicolas Sanson II (1625-1648), after his premature death and published by Pierre Mariette the younger (1634-1716) in Sanson’s Carte générales de la geographie ancienne et nouvelle in or just after 1667.
