Designed by Séguin, the king's geographer, this map of Burgundy, divided into dioceses, baillages and subdelegations, was commissioned by the provincial states of the Duchy of Burgundy, as part of the Cassini map of France.
Indeed, Louis XV had expressed the desire to have a general map of France drawn up and had entrusted this mission to Cassini de Thury.
The Cassini, because César-François was replaced at his death by his son Jean-Dominique, acquitted themselves in a remarkable way, over almost 50 years, by establishing the first general and particular map of the kingdom and, from a cartographic point of view , the first to rely on a geodesic triangulation.
Some provincial states including Burgundy which, the first proposed to Cassini to draw up themselves the particular maps of their region, which obviously interested the cartographer.
Besides, these particular maps are often superior, for the form and the background, to the corresponding plates of the Map of France.
