Polonia

Fine early map of Poland, published by Henricus Hondius in Amsterdam.

Originally issued by Mercator, the map depicts most of present-day Poland and Lithuania (including Vilna) and a the eastern part of Czechia.

Among the major cities to appear are Warsaw (Warzonia), Krakow (Cracovia, and Wroclaw (Breslaw). Silesia is clearly outlined and labelled.

Mercator's name has been erased and a new title cartouche was added for this edition, which was issued for only a few years.

Henricus Hondius (1597-1651) was a Dutch engraver and mapmaker, a member of a prominent cartographic family. His father, Jodocus Hondius, was also an engraver and geographer. While working with his father, Henricus was instrumental in the expansion and republishing of Mercator’s atlas, first published in 1595 and republished by Hondius in 1606.   

Upon his father’s death in 1612, Henricus and his brother, Jodocus the Younger, took over the business. He set up his own shop in 1621, where he continued to release new editions of the Mercator atlas. Later, he partnered with his brother-in-law, Jan Janssonius, in continuing to expand and publish Mercator’s atlas, which would become known as the Mercator-Hondius-Janssonius atlas. Born and based in Amsterdam, he died there in 1651.
