Jean André Dezauche

Jean Andre Dezauche was the son of Jean-Claude Dezauche, a well-known Paris map-publisher. Dezauche Senior had set up his shop around 1770 and his son took over the business upon his father’s death. The foundation for the business was that Dezauche Senior had acquired the archives of Guillaume De l’Isle and Philipe Buache – highly renowned royal French cartographers – and had built his business around it. Among his many lucrative contracts was a monopoly on selling the maps produced by the national Dèpôt de la Marine, a contract his son inherited along with the business.
