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.

Description
Map shows Transylvania. With detailed representation of all cities, forests and mountains.
Transilvania  is a historical region located in what is today the central part of Romania. Bound on the east and south by its natural borders, the Carpathian mountain range, historical Transylvania extended westward to the Apuseni Mountains. The region of Transylvania is known for the scenic beauty of its Carpathian landscape and its rich history. It also contains major cities such as Cluj-Napoca, Brașov, Sibiu and Târgu Mureș. The Habsburgs acquired the territory shortly after the Battle of Vienna in 1683. In 1687, the rulers of Transylvania recognized the suzerainty of the Habsburg emperor Leopold I, and the region was officially attached to the Habsburg Empire.
