|Contextual Notes||Frederik de Wit (1610-1698) was a major Dutch cartographer and publisher in Amsterdam. He founded his business in 1648 and produced a number of wall maps, world atlases, sea charts, and "town books" throughout the seventeenth century. In 1674, he purchased a few Blaeu map plates and later purchased some of Jannson's plates. His work was very popular and he became well-known for his attractive engraving and coloring. His works include "Atlases" (c.a. 1670), "Atlas Minor" (1670), "Zee Atlas" (1675), "Atlas Belgium" (1666-7), "Atlas Major" (1690) and "Orbis Maritimus ofte Zee Atlas" (1675) (Moreland and Bannister, 115; Tooley 670).|
