An early seventeenth century map issued in a popular geography written by Pieter Bertius. These maps were engraved by the brother-in-laws, Jodocus Hondius and Pieter van den Keere. The maps have a charm which comes from their fine engraving and small size, and they present some of the most up-to-date information of areas around the world available at the time.
