[Title-Page] Belgii Inferioris ... : G.Mercator

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Gerard Mercator's project to complete a cartographical description of the entire universe, both heaven and earth, was eventually realised in the "Atlas, Sive Cosmographicae Meditationes De Fabrica Mundi". Mercator intended to produce a modern geography and a Ptolemaic atlas, a massive and over-ambitious project. In fact, only 'Ptolemaic Geographia' was completed in his lifetime, and it was left to his son, Rumold, to complete and publish the world atlas in 1595. This was the first time the name "Atlas" was applied to a bound collection of maps, and, like Mercator's projection, has remained in everyday use to this day. This is the titlepage to the volume of the atlas devoted to maps of the Low Countries.
