Artist Nolin/Coronelli (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.
Title Les etats de Savoye et de Piemont
Year ca. 1690
Decorative map of Savoyen and Piemont with city maps and views of Verceil, Verrve and Turin and a total view of Chambery, the former capital city of Savoyen, in the title cartouche . Savoyen is a cultural region in Western Europe. It comprises roughly the territory of the Western Alpsbetween Lake Geneva in the north and Dauphiné in the south. The historical land of Savoy emerged as the feudal territory of the House of Savoy during the 11th to 14th centuries. The historical territory is shared between the modern countries of France, Italy, and Switzerland. Installed by Rudolph III, King of Burgundy, officially in 1003, the House of Savoy became the longest surviving royal house in Europe. It ruled the County of Savoy to 1416 and then the Duchy of Savoy from 1416 to 1860. The territory of Savoy was annexed to France in 1792 under the French First Republic, before being returned to the Kingdom of Sardinia in 1815. Savoy, along with the county of Nice, was finally annexed to France by a plebiscite, under the Second French Empire in 1860, as part of a political agreement (Treaty of Turin) brokered between the French emperor Napoleon III and King Victor Emmanuel II of the Kingdom of Sardinia that began the process of unification of Italy. Victor Emmanuel's dynasty, the House of Savoy, retained its Italian lands of Piedmont and Liguriaand became the ruling dynasty of Italy.
