|Contextual Notes||Pierre Du Val (Duval) (c. 1619-1683) was born in Abbeville and died in Paris. He served as the Geog. Ordinaire du Roy and was a son-in-law and pupil of the great cartographer, Nicolas Sanson (1600-1683). Du Val published many atlases and maps including individual maps of the world and works he re-engraved from Sanson. His work includes maps in Jansson's "Ancient Atlas" (1653), "Canada" (1653), "Amérique" (1655), "Cartes de géographie" (1662), "Le Monde ou la Géographie Universal" (1662), "L'A.B.C. du Monde (1670), "Provinces Unies" (1672), "Géog. Universal" (1678). (Moreland and Bannister, 128; Tooley, 184). (Moreland and Bannister, 87-8; Tooley, "Dictionary of Mapmakers" 557).|
This particular map was most likely published in "Le Monde ou la Geographie" a small atlas published in 1670 and reissued in 1682 (Johnson).
