Paraguay, O Prov. De Rio De La Plata ... : J. Jansson

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive map of Paraguay by Jan Jansson (sometimes Janssonius). Janssonius Jr. settled in Amsterdam and further strengthened his family links with the Hondius family when he married Jodocus' daughter Elisabeth in 1612. From about 1633 onwards Janssonius' name and imprint started appearing on the Mercator/Hondius "Atlas ...". After 1636 the name of the "Atlas ..." was changed to "Atlas Novus" with Janssonius being responsible, in the main, for its publication. The "Atlas Novus" was expanded by Janssonius over the years of its publication in an attempt to rival Blaeu's Atlas Maior for size and quality. This interesting map covers a vast area with detail concentrated along the Plate and Paraguay Rivers where native names odentify tribal regions and Jesuit Missions.
