Nicolas Sanson, born 1600 in Abbeville, was a French historian and cartographer. Louis XIII appointed him Géographe Ordinaire du Roi. His main work, the Atlas Cartes Générales de Toutes les Parties du Monde, was issued first in 1654 until 1676. After his death in 1667, the business was continued by his sons Guillaume and Adrien in partnership with A. H. Jaillot.
