In 1630, he created his first atlas ‘Atlantis Appendix’ and five years later, he also published the first edition in two tomes of ‘Atlas Novus’. After his death, in 1638, his son Joan edited the well known Atlas Maior, published in 11 volumes in 1662. In 1672 a fire destroyed the workshop marking the end of the business. Fine copy
