Alexis-Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712) the French geographer, printer and cartographer in Paris, in the service of King Louis XIV. Around 1669 he went into partnership with Nicolas Sanson's sons, Guillaume and Adrien, to produce an enlarged edition of Sanson's maps. Jaillot's most important work was, 'Le Neptune Francois', a wonderful sea-atlas produced in 1693, in co-operation with Cassini. However, falling out with Sanson's heirs, he helped Pierre Mortier publish a pirate edition in Amsterdam. The portrait was published in 'Allgemeine Geographische Ephemeriden' (Universal Geographical Ephemerides (i.e. encyclopedia)) by Friedrich Bertuch et al.
