Jean Boisseau, a Parisian map publisher, is recorded as a ‘master illuminator’ in 1631 and a ‘map colourist’ from 1635 - “Enlumineur de cartes marines ”  /  “ Enlumineur du Roy pour les cartes geographiques ”.  Boisseau published his first map Diocese d’Aire in 1635, and a number of his own maps from 1636.  However, Mirielle Pastoureau in “Les Atlas Francais” lists only one edition of Boisseau’s atlas Theatre des Gaules, dated 1642.
