    Rigobert Bonne (1727-1795) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century, succeeding Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in 1773. Bonne’s work represents a distinct step away from the decorative work popular during the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. He focused mostly on coastal regions during his career.
