✨ Vintage 1663 Map "Terrarum Orbis Geographica Hydrographica" Trivia:
Original created by Henricus Hondius around 1630, this is an edition of the first decorative world map, in 1663.
It was created in response to competition from another map maker, Willem Blaeu.
Henricus Hondius (1597-1651) was a Dutch engraver and mapmaker, a member of a prominent cartographic family. His father, Jodocus Hondius, was also an engraver and geographer. While working with his father, Henricus was instrumental in the expansion and republishing of Mercator’s atlas, first published in 1595 and republished by Hondius in 1606.
