The Mercator maps were drawn and engraved by Gerard Mercator in the mid-16th century, and issued as an atlas after his death in 1595 by his son Rumold. After the plates were bought by Jodocus Hondius in 1604 and continued to be published until the mid-1630s when the copper plates were re-engraved due to wear and cartouche updated by his son Henricus Hondius. In 1628 Henricus Hondius II (1597 - 1651) partnered with the cartographer Jan Janssonius and together they continued the business with Mercator atlases.
