Adolphe Hypolite Dufour

Adolphe Hypolite Dufour (1798-1865) was a French geographer and mapmaker. Dufour studied with Lapie and worked with him on several maps for the Dépôt de la Marine. In 1824, he published the first map under his name: A Geographical Analysis of the Map of Palestine. After his initial success, Dufour took part in many historical and topographical publications for which he prepared and drew plans and maps. Dufour contributed maps and insights to many well-known French publications, but he is most famous for the Dufour atlas, a physical, historical, and political atlas of France, its departments, and its colonies (106 maps) published in 1857. Among Auguste Henri Dufour’s students was Alexandre Vuillemin.
