Bertius (1565-1629) was a Flemish cartographer, theologian, historian and geographer. Although he published much in the fields of mathematics, theology and history, he is perhaps best known as a cartographer. This example is from his Tabularum Geographicarum Contractarum, and was heavily influenced by the earlier works of Mercator, from the late sixteenth century. He was connected, by marriage to Jacobus Hondius and Pieter van den Keere - both excellent cartographers, who would influence his later life.
Bertius was 'Cosmographer' to the court of King Louis XIII.
