    About the cartographer:  Philippe Buache, (Feb. 7, 1700 — Jan. 27, 1773), was a late 18th century French cartographer and map publisher who was the foremost theoretical geographer of his generation. Buache’s mentor was the proliferant cartographer Guillaume Delisle, who later became his father-in-law. In 1729 Buache became the first royal geographer of King Louis XV and was elected to the Academy of Sciences in 1730.
