Conrad Malte-Brun ( 1755- 1826) was an important late 18th and early 19th century Danish / French cartographer and revolutionary. Along with colleague Edme Mentelle, Malte-Brun published his first cartographic work, the "Géographie Mathématique, Physique et Politique de Toutes les parties du Monde" ( published between 1803 and 1807). He went on to found , "Les Annales des Voyages "(in 1807) and " Les Annales des Voyages, de la Géographie et de l'Histoire" (in 1819). He also founded the Paris " Société de Géographie" . In time Malte-Brun became known as one of the finest French cartographers of his time. His son Victor Adolphe Malte-Brun (1816 - 1889) followed in his footsteps, republishing many of his Father's original 18th century maps as well as producing numerous maps of his own.
