Born at Dieppe, Mauger may have been a student of Jean Varin. Having settled at Paris ca. 1677, he was primarily engaged on the medallic series of Louis XIV, first engraving large medals for the Royal Series, then engraving the entire first Uniform Series of Louis XIV between 1695 and 1703. Mauger executed the obverse portraits for the Uniform Series after designs by Antoine Coypel and was assisted on the series by Jean Dollin, Thomas Bernard, Hercule Breton, Joseph Roettiers and Jerome Roussel. After 1702 he worked, assisted by Dollin, Roeg, Le Blanc, Benjamin Duvivier, and Roettiers, on the reformed Uniform Series, which remained unfinished at the death of Louis XIV.
