Alexis Hubert Jaillot

Alexis-Hubert Jaillot (1632 -November 3, 1712) was a French Paris geographer, cartographer, and publisher. He was active from the last quarter of the 17th century and into the beginning of the 18th century, working closely with the sons and heirs of Nicolas Sanson and serving King Louis XIV as a royal cartographer for many years.

Pierre Mortier the Elder

Pierre Mortier the Elder (1661-1711) was a French cartographer and publisher who, in 1690, obtained the French king’s privilege to distribute the works of French geographers – particularly Hubert Jaillot – in the Netherlands. He subsequently settled in Amsterdam and built an extensive business on reissuing French maps. His son would take over his father’s business and become the latter half of the mapmaking duo Covens & Mortier.
