Date:
1783
Phys. Desc:

Copperplate non-contemporary hand-colored map of the Holy Land at the time of Jesus Christ. Lower left quandrant contains a map of Jerusalem at the Time of Jesus Christ. Title in decorative cartouche. Lower right quandrant contains a map of Judea under King Herod.18 x 13. Framed. Cartography by R. Bonne

In 1773, Rigobert Bonne (1727-1795) was appointed Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depot de la Marine.  His attention to detail and accuracy along with his practical aesthetics were a departure from the decorative and artistic cartography of the 17th and early 18th century and made him one of the most important map makers of the modern era.
