The family business of print and map selling was founded Joachim Ottens but the active period of ma publishing was concentrated in the years between 1720 and 1750 when the brothers, Reinier and Joshua, produced enormous collections of maps, some as large as 15 volumes. These, including copies of practically all maps available at the time, were made up to order and were magnificently coloured. Besides these specially prepared collections they also issued single-volume atlases with varying contents as well as pocket atlases.
