     Alain Manesson Mallet (1630-1706) was an engineer, cartographer and surveyor for King Louis XIV. In 1663 he published a five volume Description de Univers, containing a map of the world as it was known at that time. This map of Isles du Cap-Verd was published by Mallet in 1685.

     I was able to identify the other five maps in the set, but not this one. The stamp identifies itself as Gravure Belga do seculo XVIII. I have not been able to improve on this identification.
