¤ Premier état. - First state. Separate publication. Desgranges was a French mapmaker at the end of the 17th century. His output was small, and only maps of Germany and Palestine and Greece by him have been traced in addition to this one. The map carries the signature of Roussel, who engraved the map, and of Dolivart, who engraved the elaborate cartouche.
The significance of the symbolic cartouche lies in the date 1689, the year in which Louis XIV declared war on England in support of the deposed Catholic monarch James II". Insets of the Channel and of the Faeroe and Shetland Islands. Below the latter is a panel of text recounting the overseas possessions and forts of the English in America, the West Indies, Africa and Asia. - Shirley, British Isles, 1650-1750, p.51, state 1.
