For nearly a century the Visscher family dominated Amsterdam's map trade. Claez Jansz Visscher (1587-1652) founded the business at the beginning of the seventeenth century, establishing the firm near the workshop of the great Dutch publisher Pieter van der Keere. At this time he produced a few separately published maps but his first major atlas was completely comprised of maps printed from van der Keere's old plates. The business was continued by Visscher's son and grandson who went by the names Nicholaes Visscher I (1618-1679) and Nicholaes Visscher II (1649-1702). During their lifetimes they issued a great quantity of atlases, which they consistently updated and revised with the latest cartographic discoveries. Elizabeth Visscher, the widow of Nicholaes II, continued the business after her husband's death and published both an Atlas Minor and an Atlas Major in many revised editions.
The business eventually was acquired by Peter Schenk (1660-1718), who continued to republish the Visscher plates until his death in 1718. In Latin. Taken from the atlas Germania Inferior, sive XVII Provinciarum Geographicae generales ut et particulares tabulae. Kaert-Boeck van de XVII Nederlandtsche Provincien published by Nicolaes Visscher II which contained 21 maps, all are "cum privilegio"Ordin: General: Belgii Foederati.
