Henri Abraham Chatelain (1684 - 1743) was a Huguenot orginally from Paris, but he live in Paris London, The Hague and Amsterdam. He is known as a Dutch cartographer and is most famous for his seven volume work Atlas Historique, published in Amsterdam between 1705 and 1720. A familiy affair, he worked with his father Zacharie (d. 1723) and his brother, also named Zacharie to produce a work that combined finely engraved views with maps, history, heraldry, cosmology and ethnography
