Stanislas Joseph Jacobs (18?? – July 5, 1867) was a French line engraver active in Paris during the middle part of the 19th century. Jacobs did work for the both the Dépôt de la Guerre ad Dépôt de la Guerre and the Dépôt des Cartes et Plans de la Marine. He often worked with Jacques-Marie Hacq. His most important publication is most likely the Eugène Duflot de Mofras map of the American west, published in 1844. Stanislas was a member of the French Société de Géographie from 1842. In 1862 Stanislas' son, Alfred Joseph Jacobs (December 15, 1827 - July 16, 1889), also an engraver, descended into mental illness in 1862 and was consigned the Charenton hospice. The illness of his son apparently catapulted Stanislas into a deep unremitting despair. Stanislas retired in 1862. He married to Thérèse Alexandrine Outrequin (January 28, 1804 – February 20, 1873). He lived in Paris at Rue De Condé, 1.
