Engelsk kartograf i slutet av 1700-talet. Han gav själv inte ut någon atlas men ritade kartor åt flera kartförläggare, t.ex. Thomas Jefferys (se denne) och Robert Sayer (se denne) 1768 och på 1790-talet för William Faden (se denne) och firman Laurie & Whittle. För de sistnämnde arbetade han även som hydrograf. Så sent som 1852 tog J. Wyld (se denne) med ett antal av hans kartor i sin atlas.
Geografia di M. Livio Sanuto distinta in XII libri. Venice: Damiano Zenaro, 1588.
The first printed atlas of Africa. Sannuto’s Geographia was intended as a compendium of world geography, but the project was curtailed by his death. Only the first part, devoted to Africa, was ever published, and that posthumously. Skelton describes the Geographia as a “methodical and precisely documented description of the geography of Africa” and notes the “critical sense” exercised in the compilation of the maps, engraved by Sanuto’s brother Giulio.
It is unfortunate that the work was left incomplete, as Skelton suggests it would have been “among the masterpieces of Renaissance geography”; the fact it was incomplete may help explain its rarity on the market today.

The old economic map
in the Region of Mälaren.
In connection with the enclose process (“laga skifte”) it was recommended
that a summary of the maps to generalized representation of whole parishes be
produced. This work was much furthered by the order that the parish maps could
serve as a sort of qualification works for surveyors. Summaries of the
enclosure maps were also put together as framework (“stomkartor”) both for
the topographic maps and for the economic maps that were drawn for "härad"
districts that consists of a group of parishes. The economic "härad"
maps were printed in the scale of 1:50 000 beginning with the maps of the
"härad" of Uppsala county (“län”) 1860. The economic maps of
Uppsala, Stockholm, Södermanland and Västmanland counties are here analyzed
as to their reliability as sources for geographical studies by means of a
comparison between the printed maps, the field maps (e.g. the revised "stomkartor")
and the underlying enclosure maps. The descriptions (“beskrivningar”)
belonging to the economic maps have been compared with official statistics
from the same years, if possible. As a result it can be said that the old
economic maps are well done and the field checking was very carefully
performed. Consequently the maps in question give a very fine synchronous view
of the regions. They should be more used by geographers, historians and
statisticians. Unfortunately all Sweden does not possess such maps.
