Description :The focus of this map is the old Kingdom of Persia though the map clearly shows present-day Iraq, Iran, & Afghanistan. Of note are the cities: Bagadet (Baghdad), Chabul or Cabul (Kabul) south, and not north, of Candahar (Kandahar) as well as other numerous towns and cities.
The map provides an interesting view into Western perceptions of the geography of the interior in the early 1600s.
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 Jan 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...... This map is from the Latin edition of 1613. Latin text on verso with a signature of seven "O"s and pages 340-341. (vd Krogt, p.706). This map was re-engraved and included in the Mercator-Hondius series of atlases by Henricus Hondius and by Jansson from 1636 to c.1680.
