Artist Nolin (1657-1725)
Jean-Baptiste Nolin (ca. 1657-1708) set up the family publishing business in Paris. Many of his maps were based on the work of Vincenzo Coronelli and Sieur de Tillemon. His son (1686-1762), continued the business for many years and prepared an Atlas General which was published posthumously in 1783.
