Louis Renard (1678 - 1746) was a Huguenot engraver and bookseller. Renard was born in France in 1678 and moved to the Netherlands in 1703. He acquired many of Frederick de Wit's map plates, which he consolidated with minor updates and revisions into the 1715, Atlas de la Navigation et du Commerce. From about 1706 Renard represented the interest of Guillaume De L'Isle in Holland, a relationship that ended on a sour note in 1718. Renard later sold the plates for the Atlas de la Navigation et du Commerce to R. and J. Ottens, who republished it under their own imprint in 1745.
