Vincenzo Maria Coronelli was among the most important and influential map makers of the late 17th Century.  After starting his career in Venice, he was invited by Louis XIV to Paris to construct a monumental set of globes, which are among the most famous cartogrpaphic works of the 17th Century. During his time in Paris, he collaborated extensively with JB Nolin, which provided him with access to the best available French maps, at a time when France was asserting its pre-eminence in the field of map making.  As a result of this access, Coronelli's maps are among the most accurate of their time, combining the best available geogrpaphical information with Coronelli's remarkable engraving style.
