Mannevillette apprenticed under the great royal cartographer Guillaume De L'Isle. His charting work, published in Neptune Oriental was a major achievement in mapping and a exceptional resource to sailors traveling the Indian Ocean and Asia. He was maticulous in updating his information so the second edition of this work truly had some of the most accurate cartography of the century.
