Robert (Jean) Janvier

Working in Paris in the second half of the eighteenth century, Jean Janvier (1746 – 1776) produced a series of maps in the later half of the century.  While there is some confusion about his Christian name, his maps usually were inscribed “Le Sieur Janvier”.  He is best known for his collaboration with engraver Jean Lattre for an Atlas Moderne first released in 1762 and in several later editions some by C. F. Delamarche and by Chez Remondini.  He also produced several maps used in general atlases by William Fadan and P. Santini.
