The translation into french is by Paul Yvounet.

Book dealer end engraver Pieter Goos (1615-1675) was one of Amsterdam's most important publishers and surveyors of seafarer's guides and maritime atlases. In the second half of the seventeenth century, these charts were considered the most accurate and up-to-date publications in the field of maritime cartography and, for that reason, were copied by more than one fellow publisher.
