Artist Jaillot (1632-1712)
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.
