From J. B. d'Apres de Mannevillette's sea atlas "Le Neptune Oriental ou routier general des Cotes des Indes orientales et de la Chine." Jean-Baptiste d'Après de Mannevillette (1707 - 1780) was a French sailor, navigator, and hydrographer active in the mid-18th century. Mannevillette studied mathematics and navigation in Paris before winning a commission as an officer on a merchant vessel headed for the West Indies. Mannevillette collected and revised a number of regional nautical charts during numerous voyages around Africa to India and China. The Compagnie des Indes (French East India Company) appointed D'Apres de Mannevillette as director of maps and plans at Lorient in 1752.
