Detailed map of the Turkish Empire, Mediterranean, Central Asia and parts of the Ukraine, Egypt, etc.
The map was originally issued by De L'Isle, with extensive improvements by Phillipe Buache in 1770 and thereafter in 1776 and 1780 (by Philippe Dezauche).
Jean-Claude Dezauche (fl. 1780-1838) was a French map publisher. He edited and reissued the maps of Guilluame De L’Isle and Philippe Buache, two of the most skilled mapmakers of the eighteenth century. He acquired the plates of these two men’s work in 1780 from Buache’s heir, Jean Nicholas Buache. Dezauche worked in the Depot de la Marine, as had the elder Buache.
