Estats de la Couronne de Boheme qui comprennent le Royaume de Boheme…
|Alexis Hubert Jaillot ( 1632 -1712) was one of the most important French cartographers of the 17th century. In 1665 he married the daughter of the cartographer family Berey. After the death of his brother-in-law, Nicolas II Berey (1640–1667), he bought from his sister–in–law the Berey map collection. This was the beginning of his career as a publisher. Later, in 1670, he had a partnership with Nicolas Sanson's son and re-published and re-engraved many of his maps. The atlases and maps mainly have been printed by Pierre Mortier in Amsterdam and Paris.|

Bohemia is the westernmost and largest historical region of the Czech lands in the present-day Czech Republic. In a broader meaning, Bohemia sometimes refers to the entire Czech territory, including Moravia and Czech Silesia, especially in a historical context, such as the Lands of the Bohemian Crown ruled by Bohemian kings. Bohemia was a duchy of Great Moravia, later an independent principality, a kingdom in the Holy Roman Empire, and subsequently a part of the Habsburg Monarchy and the Austrian Empire. After World War I and the establishment of an independent Czechoslovak state, Bohemia became a part of Czechoslovakia. Between 1938 and 1945, border regions with sizeable German-speaking minorities of all three Czech lands were joined to Nazi Germany as the Sudetenland.
