Description

Trade card for 'Petit Atlas Moderne ou Collection de Cartes' (small modern atlas or collection of charts) by the cartographer Jean Lattre, 20 rue st Jaques, Paris, France. A cherub in a rural setting, surrounded by items including a terrestrial globe, sextant and compas, holds a map of France showing Paris, Lyon and Bordeaux. Lattre was a French cartographer who worked in Paris from c 1746. There is some confusion about his Christian name but his maps usually bore the inscription 'Le Sieur Janvier'. In addition to work published under his own name by Jean Lattre in Bordeaux and C. F. Delamarche in Paris, he collaborated with other cartographers and publishers in producing a considerable number of maps, many of which were used in general atlases by William Fadan, P Santini and others.
