Frederick de Wit, Sr. was the founder of a prominent Dutch family firm of three generations of cartographers working in Amsterdam. The firms output was prolific, and de Wit maps are often found in atlases by other cartographers. During his long working life, de Wit published 124 land maps and 27 sea charts that were distinguished by their high standard of workmanship, beauty, accuracy and fine coloration.
The maps are typical of the style of the period, being completely executed and decorated with cartouches. The founder's son, a skilled mathematician and grandson together carried on the work of the firm, and published 130 maps, although the business did not survive for long after the elder de Wit's death.
