[German.] [n.d. c.1810.]
Stipple with large margins. Plate 152 x 89mm (6 x 3½").
Francois Andreossy (1633-1688) the French engineer and cartographer, who in 1660 went to study Italian canal technology in Lombardy and Padua. When he returned to France, he became Pierre-Paul Riquet's assistant as he was able to supply the technical expertise of canal building that Riquet lacked. He was also responsible for the levelling and the drawing of the maps. He monitored the construction and assisted Riquet until Riquet's death, after which he continued to work at the canal. Many argue that the Canal du Midi should be attributed to Andreossy and not Riquet. The portrait was published in 'Allgemeine Geographische Ephemeriden' (Universal Geographical Ephemerides (i.e. encyclopedia)) by Friedrich Bertuch et al.

Portait of Wolfgang Lazius, within an ornate strapwork border. Lazio (1514-65) was an Austrian humanist who worked as a cartographer, historian, and physician.
