J. Andriveau and J. Goujon (fl. 1805-94), working collectively as Andriveau-Goujon, were among the most prominent cartographic publishers in 19th century France. Maps by Andriveau-Goujon are often confusing to identify as they can be alternately singed J. Goujon, J. Andriveau, J.Andriveau-Goujon or simply Andriveau-Goujon. They published numerous pocket maps and atlases throughout the 19th century and often worked with other prominent French cartographers of the time such as Brue and Levasseur. Andriveau-Goujon are especially well known for their high quality case and library maps.
Generally fine condition, no restoration, slight age toning, minor transference.
