Berckenrode, B.F. van

Ducatus Geldriae novissima descriptio

55 x 46 cm, modern hand colour, Amsterdam, engraved 1629, printed 1636. Regional map mainly of Gelderland and Utrecht compiled under the direction of Henricus Hondius (1597-1651) from the 1636 English language edition of the Mercator/Hondius Atlas, Or A Geographicke Description of the World.  Unquestionably the most famous cartographer of all time, Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) envisioned his Atlas even before his friend Abraham Ortelius began work on his Theatrum, but it was late to publish, limited in geographic coverage, and never achieved commercial success in his lifetime or under the administration of his sons.  However, with the addition of some 40 maps by the Hondius firm which purchased Mercator's plates from his heirs in 1604 an expanded and reissued "Mercator/Hondius" Atlas was published to great acclaim, eventually issued in nearly 50 editions in several languages. An scarce and important map.
