Nice example of one of Buache's editions of Guillaume De L'Isle's map of the British Isles.

The map incorporates John Speed's information on England, Timothy Pont's mapping of Scotland and Petty's mapping of Ireland, as noted in the title.

Philippe Buache (1700-1773) was one of the most famous French geographers of the eighteenth century. Buache was married to the daughter of the eminent Guillaume Delisle and worked with his father-in-law, carrying on the business after Guillaume died. Buache gained the title geographe du roi in 1729 and was elected to the Academie des Sciences in the same year. Buache was a pioneering theoretical geographer, especially as regards contour lines and watersheds. He is best known for his works such as Considérations géographiques et physiques sur les découvertes nouvelles dans la grande mer (Paris, 1754).
