Comitatus Flandria : A.Goos / J.Jansson

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive map of Flanders. In 1607 Jodocus Hondius published a reduced size version of Gerard Mercator's renowned "Atlas", itself suitably titled "Atlas Minor". The maps were copied from those of the great cartographer Mercator of around 1580-90 or were reductions of Hondius' own maps of 1606. The popularity of the smaller format and reduced price, compared with the folio issues of "Atlas", was reflected in the many subsequent editions and in the variety of derivative publications in similar style. Almost 20 years later the map and atlas publisher Joannes Janssonius commissioned a new set ofcopperplates to be engraved by Pieter Van Den Keere (often sgned Kaerius) and Abraham Goos, two of the most proficient and experienced Dutch map engravers of the period. These maps were elegantly designed with decorative title cartouches, and were finely engraved and surprisingly detailed, elements particularly noticeable in their early printings, as here.
