De Fer Nicolas 1647 - 1720
Geographer of His Catholic Majesty 1702 and Monseigneur le Dauphin 1690 and geographer of the Royal Children.
Nicolas de Fer was the Son of the print dealer Antoine de Fer. He returned to apprenticeship at the age of 12 with the engraver Louis Spirinx in May 1659 then worked with his father until his death in June 1673, then with his mother until 1687, when she sells his business to him (8 Nov. 1687).
Engineer and cartographer, he will employ several engravers who will carry out his nautical charts, the cartography of the conquests of Louis XIV, that is to say more than 600 maps or plans including political, administrative, ecclesiastical, hydrographic, orographic France, as well as various bordering countries.
His remarkable work will result from the union of maps in the Curious Atlas where the World is represented in general and particular maps of Heaven and Earth.
