Georges-Louis Le Rouge Atlas nouveau portatif: à l'usage des militaires et du voyageu
Georges-Louis Le Rouge was a trained architect and cartographer from Hanover, Germany. In the early 1740s, Le Rouge was appointed a geographer engineer for King Louis XV, also serving under King Louis XVI. A sizable portion of his cartographic work was the result of re-engraving English maps for French publication. Le Rouge was also known for his descriptions and illustrations of European gardens. Le Rouge was closely aligned with the French nobility and disappeared from the historical record following the French Revolution, though his death is estimated to be around 1790.
This atlas depicts the regions in what is today Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and the Czech Republic.
