Delamarche founded the important and prolific Maison Delamarche map publishing firm in the late 18th century. His work follows in the footsteps of his predecessors, Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667), Robert de Vaugondy (1686-1766), and Rigobert Bonne (1727-1794), many of whose maps he continued to reprint well into the early 19th century. Delamarche eventually passed control of the firm to his son Felix Delamarche (18th C. – 1st half 19th C.) and geographer Charles Dien (1809-1870). The firm continued to publish maps and globes throughout the mid 19th century.
