    Abbé Clouet was a prominent member of the Académie Royale des Sciences de Rouen. He started publishing maps in collaboration with Mondhare in Paris in the 1760's initially with geographical atlasses such as the Géographe moderne. From 1776 to the mid-1790s, much of their output was devoted to large wallmaps of the world and continents which were published as sets, and issued in 1776, 1782, 1785 and 1788. A world wallmap appeared in 1785.
