Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688–1766), also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy (c.1723–1786), were leading mapmakers in France during the 18th century.
In 1757, they published The Atlas Universel, one of the most important atlases of the 18th century. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In 1760, Didier Robert de Vaugondy was appointed geographer to Louis XV.

¤ An early town-view of the town of Narva, located at the eastern tip of Estonia, on the Russian border.
From the uncommon Hamburg edition "Viel Vermehrte Moscowitische und Persianische Reisebeschreibung" by Adam Olearius.
Underneath the copper engraving we find an interesting description of the scene printed in letter press.
The engraving was done by Christian Rothgiesser after a design of J. Stahl.

Adam Olearius was a seventeenth-century German scholar, employed as secretary to an embassy sent by the small German state of Holstein to explore an overland trade route with Persia. The first embassy was dispatched to Russia in 1633-34 to secure the tsar's permission to travel and ship through his realm.
The second was sent in 1635 to complete the deal with the king (shah) of Persia. Although the commercial mission failed miserably, the embassy was successful in the incredible amount of information gathered by Olearius.
After returning to Holstein in 1639, Olearius continued in the Duke's service and published the first edition of his travels in 1647.
In 1656 he released a second, enlarged edition which became very popular throughout Europe and within a few years was translated into Dutch, French, Italian and English.

¤ Vue d'optique anonyme. - So-called optical print illustrating a perspective view of St. Petersburg, namely the ancient Winter Palace and the canal which joins the Moika to the Neva.
In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries there were many popular speciality establishments in Paris, Augsburg and London which produced optical viewing devices and special engravings to be viewed through them. In the 18th century the optical print or vue optique came into existence, whose exaggerated converging lines were intended to produce the optical illusion of deep recession. The viewing devices for which these perspective prints were produced consisted of a lens and a mirror, this requiring the use of reversed or mirror-image pictures.

¤ Detailed map including southern part of Norway, including Bergen, Faroe and Shetland Islands.

From his famous Atlas Universel . This atlas was one of the most remarkable world atlases ever produced, anticipating the International Map of the World and being the first atlas to show the entire land mass of the world on a uniform scale.
Supported by the fortune of his parents and assisted by his brother, Jean-François, Vandermaelen built a spacious geographical Institute in 1829, in which he installed a map-drawing section, a library and a museum. He published one of the most remarkable world atlases ever made: a world atlas with ca.400 maps on a uniform scale of ca. 1:1,6 million. This work, which appeared in 1827, was far ahead of its time but its appearance could only be justified by the unparalleled zeal of its author.
This atlas was also the first to be made totally with lithography, carried out by Henri Ode, who applied a new technique, especially designed for the Atlas Universel. Koeman: Vdm 1. Phillips 749, Sabin 43762.

¤ Uncommon map prepared by Anders Bure (1571-1646) with a dedicational cartouche to Gabriel Bengtsson Oxenstierna.

The Atlas Maior is the epitome of decades of achievement by the Blaeu family. Published in five languages (Latin, Dutch, French, German and Spanish) from 1662, it grew to eleven or twelve volumes in its most comprehensive editions, and was as Koeman observes a "costly atlas . . . Exclusively designed for those members of the patriciate who could command both the material and intellectual resources that were needed to buy and appreciate it". Joan's father, Willem Blaeu, commenced publication of his new world atlas, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, also referred to as the Atlas Novus, initially in two volumes, published in four languages. After succeeding his father, Joan Blaeu progressively expanded the Atlas Novus to six volumes by 1655, and this formed the first half the Atlas Maior.

¤ A scarce map of the district of Västmanland in central Sweden, just north of Lake Mälaren. A large title cartouche upper left and a key in the lower left corner.
The map is a part of a work by Kongl. Landtmäteri Contoiret and its associates published in the years 1739-1793, covering parts of Sweden, Finland and the Baltic States. Engraved by Georg Biurman a Swedish engraver and mapmaker.
This was the first effort to map the country in somewhat uniform maps. The first map to be published in 1739, was the grand "Charta öfwer Mälaren" by Jacob Nordencreutz. The maps Upland, Västmanland, Södermanland, Nerike, Skåne and a general map of Sweden followed in the 1740s and early 1750s.
Few copies of these early maps were sold and the endeavor came to a halt due to economic difficulties. After some years, the next map to be published was the 1769 map of Medelpad. The remaining maps were then published during the next twenty-five years.
The last map "Charta öfver Heinola Höfdingedöme" was issued in 1793. Many parts of Sweden were never covered (Öland, Gotland, Halland, Herjedalen and Norrbotten). Since the project was unfinished, it was never sold as a proper atlas.

The few atlases that do exist are compilations. The general map of 1747 by Biurman is a milestone in Swedish cartography. It replaces Bureus1626 map as a blue print of Sweden for foreign cartographers. (In the mid 1790s Samuel Gustaf Hermelin launched a private attempt to map the country, this time with success. All of Sweden and Finland was mapped by 1818.
