Artist Vuillemin (1812-1880)
Alexandre Vuillemin (1812-1880) was a prominent 19th century French cartographer and editor based in Paris. He produced a number of atlases, and his maps are noted for the frequent use of extensive margin illustrations – vignettes, famous people, and views of cities. His atlases were popular, and many went through multiple editions. Despite a prolific cartographic career, not a lot is known of Vuillemin's life. He studied under the French cartographer Auguste Dufour (1798 - 1865),and his atlases and maps are held by and available through many collections including the British Museum.
