Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612) was the founder of the famous 17th century Dutch map publishing family. Hondius, along with sons Jodocus II and Henricus and son-in-law Johannes Janssonius, was prominent in Dutch cartography and competed with the emerging Blaeu family map business.

When Jodocus Hondius acquired the copperplates of the Mercator atlas and decided to re-issue them in 1606, he prepared this map for inclusion in his Atlas sive Cosmographicae......, or the Mercator-Hondius atlas as it is more commonly called. This map is from an edition of 1613 with Latin text on the verso with a signature of "Fffff" and pages 228-229. (vd Krogt, p.628). This map last appeared in a Mercator Hondius atlas of 1636.
