Adrien-Hubert Brué

Adrien Hubert Brué (1786-1832) was a French cartographer active in the 18th and 19th centuries. He was born in Paris on March 20, 1786, and died of cholera on July 16, 1832, in Sceaux.

From the age of twelve, Brué served as a cabin boy on board ships. In this capacity, he joined the Baudin expedition (1800-1804) to the South Seas and New Holland, aged only fourteen. As a cartographer, he produced both atlases and dedicated maps, many of which were acknowledged for their accuracy and high-quality copper engraving, which Brué himself did. His most well-known work was a Universal Atlas published in 1820, which initially included 36 maps, but gradually was expanded both by himself and Charles Picquet.
