Cartographer(s):

Henri Abraham Chatelain

Henri Abraham Chatelain (1684 – 1743) was a Protestant pastor (Huguenot) from Paris, who due to his faith was forced to flee his native France. He settled first in London, and later in Holland, where he worked from both The Hague and Amsterdam during the early 18th century. While his primary calling was as a preacher, his Atlas Historique became a huge success, in part due to the vivacious decoration and abundance of information included on his charts.

Condition Description
