Article descriptionCopper engraving, hand colored in wash. Decorative map of South America published ca. 1760 in an atlas by Nicolaus Bellin. South America is nicely depicted with its rivers and mountains, further islands and place names are shown along the coast line. Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) was one of the most important French cartographers of the mid-eighteenth century. He was appointed the first Ingenieur Hydrographe de la Marine, and also Official Hydrographer to the French King. Nicolaus Bellin produced a substantial number of important separately issued maps, particularly reflecting continuing discoveries and political events in the Americas. His maps and charts were finely engraved and produced, and set a high standard of accuracy.
