Nicolas Bailleul was the youngest of a family of French engravers who worked in the first half of the 1700s. Like his father Gaspard and elder siblings François and Marie, Nicolas concentrated on the engraving of letters and inscriptions. Only a small number of artists in the eighteenth century specialized in this type of engraving. The maps he produced for the book Nouveau voyage en France (The New Voyage in France) are among his few pictorial engravings.
