Jacques Robbe

Jacques Robbe (1643-1721) was known as a geographer for the volume, “Methode Pour Appredres Facilement La Geographie”. He was born in Soissons, was educated as a lawyer and was as well-known as a poet and playwrigt as he was a geographer. His “Methode ...” was first published in 1678 and was intended as an educational volume. The contents were divided into a treatise on the sphere and the division of the world into its various continents, kingdoms and empires. However, this first 1678 volume lacked maps but was rectified in the second edition of 1685
