de Fer, Nicolas

Nicolas de Fer (1646-1720) was the youngest of three sons of cartographer Antoine de Fer. He drew his first map at the age of 23, inherited the family business in 1687, and became cartographer to Louis, Dauphin of France in 1690. He was later also appointed cartographer to both King Louis XIV of France and King Philip V of Spain; and also, shortly before his death, to Pope Clement XI. In line with his patronage, many of his maps recorded and celebrated the military exploits and other projects of the House of Bourbon. His works were noted for their decorative nature, although not always for their accuracy. We stock a selection of his beautiful plans and prints of fortified towns, cities and ports; battles, islands and canals from "A la Sphere Royal" (1705), many of which depict sieges and military engagements of the Nine Years' War (1688-1697). These maps and views cover many locations in continental Europe within France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Malta, Poland, Serbia, Ukraine & Sweden; as well as plans and prints of the cities of Quebec, Constantinople (Istanbul) and Batavia (Jakarta).
