click here to view a large version in a separate window

The famous portrait of two of the most important mapmakers from the Golden Age of Dutch cartography was engraved by Coletta Hondius, as a tribute to her late husband, shortly after his death. Gerard Mercator sits to the left of a table with his successor, Jodocus Hondius, to the right and they are surrounded by the tools of their trade. The portrait is set within an elaborate framework that includes a wall map of Europe. Following Hondius' death in 1612, it was first published in the Atlas of 1613. An attractive example on lightly age-toned paper.
