World map, 1630, by Henricus Hondius (Dutch, 15971651) from the Novus Atlas
This popular baroque-style map was originally designed as a frontispiece to Henricus Hondiuss 1630 revision of the long-lived Mercator/Hondius atlas, a work then being challenged by rival map publishers. The decorations include depictions of the four elementsearth, air, fire, and waterand portraits of Julius Caesar and cartographers Claudius Ptolemy, Gerard Mercator, and Jodocus Hondius Sr.
