Nicolas Sanson (1600–1667) was a French cartographer, wrongly termed by some the creator of French geography. He was born of an old Picardy family of Scottish descent, at Abbeville, on the 20th (or 31st) of December 1600, and was educated by the Jesuits at Amiens. Louis XIII made him "Géographe Ordinaire du Roi". His main work was the Atlas Cartes Générales de Toutes les Parties du Monde (1654-1676). After his death, the business was continued by his sons Guillaume Sanson and Adrien in partnership with A. H. Jaillot.
