Frederick de Wit (1629-1706) was the founder of a prominent Dutch family of cartographers, which spanned three generations during the 17th century. In 1648 during the height of the Dutch Golden Age, Frederick de Wit opened a printing office in Amsterdam. The firm's output was prolific. 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 decorated with exquisite cartouches.
