Robert de Vaugondy
Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688–1766), also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy (c.1723–1786), were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century.
Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map; Gilles often signed maps as M.Robert, while Didier commonly signed his maps as Robert de Vaugondy, or added fils or filio after his name.
In 1757, Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy published the "Atlas Universel."
