Source: ebay, Mar. 2004

"Pierre Du Val was a nephew and pupil of the greatest of all French cartographers, Nicolas Sanson, and went on to become the Royal Geographer. He published many atlases in all sizes including the two volume 'Geographie Universelle', and 'Le Monde Chrestien'. This map comes from a 1666 edition of his atlas 'La Geographie Ancienne'. The map measures 9" by 6", has later outline hand colouring, and is in very good condition."
