Great cartographer of late 18th century, Rigobert Bonne (1727-1795) was a royal cartographer in France, following Jacques Nicolas Bellin in the hydrographer office of the Navy Depot. Bonne produced some of the most detailed and accurate maps of his time. The maps of R. Bonne represent an evolution in comparison with the more decorative maps of the previous century, and although an important part of Bonne’s Cartesian style may be attributed to his predecessor, Bellin, Rigobert Bonne’s maps are usually less decorative, but more specific.
