.. Antique Map of the Low Countries by Brué (1822)

Description: Antique map titled 'Carte du Royaume des Pays-Bas'. Large format map of the Low Countries. This map originates from 'Atlas Universel', published 1822.

Artists and Engravers: Andre Hubert Brué was a French geographer and cartographer. Born in Paris, he served in the French Navy, joining the Baudin expedition to the Pacific (1800-1804). After his sea service, Brué applied his navigation and charting skills to creating finely-crafted maps, which were renowned for their crisp engraving and accuracy. He drew directly on the copper of the plate, creating what he called encyprotypes. He is best known for the 'Atlas universal de géographie physique, politique, ancienne et moderne'.
