Tooley called Sanson "the founder of the French school of cartography." He began making maps in the late 1620s, and in the 1630s he was working with Melchior Tavernier. Later, Sanson worked in concert with the print publisher Pierre Mariette, with whom he published his great atlas: Cartes générales de toutes les parties du monde (1658). After Sanson's death in 1667, his son Guillaume carried on the business in partnership with Alexis Hubert Jaillot. Guillaume established himself as a very important French mapmaker in his own right.
