      Well, having Googled around, the answer to my own question is that the first editions of both "Robinson Crusoe" and "Gulliver's Travels" had illustrations by Herman Moll, who was a major cartographer of the time.

      Also, older, there are charts (though not exactly maps) by Bartolomeo
      (I can't figure out _which_ Bartolomeo -- it's dated 1420, which doesn't correspond to any of the Bartolomeo painters in Wikipedia) and by Botticelli.
