About the Art: Superior Edition
About the Artist:

Jan Jansson was the son of a bookseller and publisher who had worked with the eminent map-maker Jodocus Hondius Sr. Born in 1588, Jansson married Jodocusís daughter Elizabeth in 1612.

Rivals and competitors of the noted cartographer Willem Blaeu, Jan Jansson and his brother-in-law Henricus Hondius re-issued the famous Mercator-Hondius Atlas from 1633, replacing or redrawing many of the maps from the original Atlas. Hondius had bought the plates and publishing rights of maps from Mercatorís successors in 1604.

After the death of Henricus, Jansson continued the business and expanded the Atlas to create the Atlas Novus. Although the new atlas was highly regarded, the work of the Blaeu family generally overshadowed Janssonís products during his lifetime.

Jansson issued revised copies of a number of other eminent atlases of the time, including Braun & Hogenburgís Civitates Orbis Terrarum and the noted Celestial Atlas of Andreas Cellarius. When reissuing atlases of this kind, many existing plates were retained but others were redrawn or added from scratch, which explains why many maps attributed to Jansson are similar, though not necessarily identical, to maps produced in earlier eras.

One of Janssonís major projects was the edition of his English County Maps, which was published in 1646. Some years earlier he had issued a number of British maps in the Mercator-Hondius series of atlases published between 1636 and 1644, but the maps for the 1646 edition were published from newly engraved plates.

Jan Jansson died in 1664.
