Article description

Original antique copper engraving, uncolored as published. This map shows the Isles of Cap Verde which are St. Antonie, St. Vincent, St. Lucie, St. Nikolas, Isle de Sal, Isle de Buenavista, Isle de Mai, St. Yago, Isle Fuego and Isle Brava. In the upper side we look to a mileage scale and in the left side we see an inside map which shows us the plan of Praya. Rigobert Bonne (6 October 1727 – 2 September 1794) was a French cartographer, widely considered to be one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century. In 1773 Bonne succeeded Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine. Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne's work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as hand coloring, elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses. While mostly focusing on coastal regions, the work of Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal. (Wikipedia)
