Very large map centered on the Mediterranean. Large cartouche with Neptune and angels at bottom and distance’s scale in upper cartouches. From the newly engraved Dutch counterfeited edition of the ' Atlas Nouveau', published by Pieter Mortier in Amsterdam even if the map notes Nicolas Sanson as the mapmaker and claims that the map was published by Alexis-Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712). Alexis-Hubert Jaillot (ca. 1632-1712) was one of the most important French cartographers of the seventeenth century. He traveled to Paris with his brother, Simon, in 1657 and went into partnership with Nicholas Sanson's sons. Beginning in 1669, he re-engraved and often enlarged many of Sanson's maps. Pierre Mortier's grandparents left France in about 1625 to live in Leiden. His parents settled in Amsterdam in 1661 or 1662. Pierre Mortier grew up in Amsterdam but lived in Paris from 1681 to about 1685 where he must have gotten into the book trade. Once he was in Amsterdam again he specialized in French books. He established himself in atlases and introduced the modern French maps by Sanson's and Jaillot's in a larger format than the classical Dutch maps
