  • This map of the province of Groningen in the Netherlands, set within an elaborate strapwork border, was published in the ‘Atlas Minor’.

    A new series of maps, replacing those by Jodocus Hondius, was engraved by Abraham Goos and Pieter van den Keere for the 1628 edition. Koeman notes that a slip of paper bearing 1630 as the date of issue was pasted over the date 1628 on the title-page of the example he examined. Read more
