A seventeenth-century map of Udrone with original colour. The title appears in a decorative cartouche at lower right and the map was published in Hondius' "Atlas Minor". Jodocus Hondius I (1563-1612) was one of the foremost map engravers of his day. Having settled in the relatively stable Amsterdam, Hondius bought the copperplates of Mercator's "Atlas Sive Cosmographicae ..." at the auction of Gerard Jr.'s effects in 1604. He added another forty maps, including new maps of the continents and important regional maps of the Americas, before publishing a new edition of the "Atlas ..." in 1606. Jodocus also had the plates of the "Atlas ..." reduced at this time in order to publish them in the "Atlas Minor" that first appeared in 1607. Cornelis Clasz and Johannes Janssonius of Arnhem (the elder Janssonius) were the publishers involved in this `miniature' endeavour.
