"Copie de 'Norvegia et Suecia' (Koeman Me 194 (22))."

"Few complete copies of this atlas have survived and little is known about its author. Most of the maps are signed: 'Jollain excudit 1667'. "

(National Maritime Museum)


"Les cartes de cet atlas sont des copies fideles de l' Atlas Minor de Mercator-Hondius, dans sa nouvelle edition gravee par Van den Keere et A. Goos en 1628 (voir Koeman Me 194)."
