Cartographer(s)

Henri Abraham Chatelain

Henri Abraham Chatelain (1684 – 1743) was a Huguenot pastor of Parisian origins. He lived consecutively in Paris, St. Martins, London (c. 1710), the Hague (c. 1721) and Amsterdam (c. 1728).

Chatelain was a skilled artist who combined a wealth of historical and geographical information with delicate engraving and an uncomplicated composition. His maps are a superb example from the golden age of French mapmaking.
