Jean-Baptiste d’Anville was one of the leading French geographers in the eighteenth century.
To encourage the fullest possible exploitation of the d’Anville archive, the Map Department of the BnF had organized this symposium. Lectures will deal with the impact of the economic factor in d’Anville’s work, d’Anville’s working method and production of knowledge, the reception of d’Anville’s work (from the general public to the specialist), his social networks (family, friends, scholars, Maecenas …), the history of d’Anville’s archive since his death.
