Son of Hugh ALLARD.
The Allard family ran an active publishing business in Amsterdam in the latter half of the seventeenth century.
Most of their publications consisted of atlases made up of maps and
town plans by their more famous predecessors, Blaeu, Jansson, de Wit,
Visscher and others, but one of their most attractive and interesting
sheet maps was of New England (Hugo Allard, 1656), based on Jansson,
which included a view of New Amsterdam by C. J. Visscher.
