Description This late 18th-century Latin map of the world by the Augsburg map publisher Tobias Lotter is based on an earlier map by the French cartographer Guillaume de l'Isle De l'Isle was among the group of French cartographers who wrested mapmaking preeminence from the Dutch in the late 17th century.
He was trained in history and geography, as well as in mathematics and astronomy. He drew extensively on classical Arabic and Persian mapmakers and travel writers, and insisted on scientific precision in his design. In , two years after the publication of his first atlas, he was elected a member of the Royal Academy of Science and in was appointed head royal geographer.
The map uses color tints and borders to demarcate divisions between the continents, as the sharp borders between Europe, Asia, and Africa highlight. Creator L'Isle, Guillaume de, Date Created The Making of the Russian Church pp. The Great Schism pp.
