Pierre DuVal

Pierre DuVal (1619 – 1683) was the son-in-law of Nicolas Sanson, the father of French cartography. He published a wide range of atlases, individual maps of the world, the continents and many spectacular wall maps.
Like compatriot A. H. Jaillot, DuVal is heralded for re-engraving many maps of Sanson, several still unprinted after Sanson’s death. DuVal did this against strong competition from the Dutch, who continued to dominate the map market until the end of the 17th century.
