Jansson's attractive map is unusual for depicting the two counties of Hampshire and Berkshire together, orientated with north to the right. The linking of the two counties on one map means that the areas around Andover, Newbury, Basingstoke and Alton are central. Jan Jansson Jr (1588-1664), was the son of a bookseller and publisher who had worked with Jodocus Hondius Sr. From about 1633 onwards, his imprint appears on the title-pages of the Mercator-Hondius "Atlas", in conjunction with his brother-in-law, Henry, as they re-issued their "Atlas" in competition with the Blaeus. At this time, many of the maps were re-drawn or replaced and the "Atlas" was expanded to become the "Atlas Novus" series, an attempt to rival Blaeu's "Atlas Maior" for size and quality. Jansson began to prepare his volume devoted to the British Isles c.1640 and which series was ultimately published as the "Novus Atlas" from 1646 on. Jansson's county maps are seen far less frequently than those of his rival Blaeu, but are similar in appearance with coats of arms and decorative title cartouches. This example with a little centrefold reinforcement and light original colour.
