The maps and charts, published separately by Jodocus Hondius (1653-1612) and Petrus Kaerius (Pieter van den Keere) (1571-after 1646) are the subject of this volume. Both were renowned engravers, mapmakers and publishers, who had a decisive influence on development of cartography in Amsterdam. Their lives and cartographic works have been discussed in detail. A selection of the maps have been reproduced at full scale. From Hondius' production, e.g. a hitherto unknown eight-sheet wall map of the world on Mercator's projection (1596), the wall maps of the continents (1598), France (c. 1600), the British Isles (1604) and the Seventeen Provinces (1593 and 1602). From Kaerius' hand, e.g. the wall map of the world in four sheets (1609), the Seventeen Provinces of 1607 (1612) in twelve sheets and of Germania (1611) in seven sheets. Also an illustrated cartobibliography of Kaerius' separately folio-sized maps has been published in an appendix.
