Robert De Vaugondy is the surname of a father and son "team" of most famous and quite
prolific French Cartographers and publishers who produced noteworthy maps, atlass and globes
in Paris from about the mid to late 18th century.
The father Gilles (1686-1766); the son is Didier (1723-1786). both were named Royal Geographers
or Geographers to the King. Giles signed his maps as M. Robert Didier added the "de" in fron of
Vaugondy probably to sound aristocratic. They were descended from the Nicolas Sanson family
which is perhaps the most famous and esteemed of the French cartographers.
