    Pieter Mortier (1661-1711) contributed to the revival of the Dutch map trade, flagging since the achievements of the Golden Age cartographers. After his death the business was continued by his widow, and brother David. From 1721, the business was taken over by Pieter's son Corneille and Jean Covens, the partnership being known as Covens and Mortier, a firm which continued until 1866.
