The Sansons was a well-known 17th century family of French cartographers.The
founder of their map shop was Nicolas
(1600–1667), who grew up in D’Abbeville. Their first atlas
which included 100 maps was published in 1654; the second one, 'Cartes
Générales de Toutes les Parties du Monde', appeared in 1658. The
importance of Sanson is reflected by the fact that it is with his maps
that the center of cartographic publishing and influence shifted from
the Low Countries to France.The business was expanded with the arrival
of his three sons, Nicolas (1626-1648), Adrian, and Guillaume as well as
a nephew, Gilles Robert de Vaugondy and grandson Pierre Moulard -Sanson.

firm flourished for almost a hundred years. Nikolas

Scherer was a Professor of Mathematics and a devout Jesuit. His ‘Atlas Novus’
first published in Munich between 1702 and 1710, formed an
unusual, almost revolutionary work in terms of the development of
European mapmaking at the beginning of the eighteenth century as it
comprised seven separate volumes organized according to themes. Besides
his thematic approach to mapmaking, Scherer introduced the revolutionary
concept for the period of showing mountains and forests in physical
relief with all major waterways and river systems clearly indicated.
Scherer’s maps are unusual because of their highly decorative Catholic
iconography and thematic nature. The maps show the revival and spread of
Catholicism in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries principally
through the efforts of the Jesuit missionaries around the globe.
