Rigobert Bonne was one of the most important cartographers of the eighteenth century. In 1773 he succeeded Jacques Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer of the Navy. In his official work, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. His work represented an important step in the evolution of cartography maps distancing decorative seventeenth and early eighteenth century to a more detailed and practical guidance. Bonne’s work is highly regarded for its detail, the historical importance and beauty in general.
