Notes: In 1628 a new set of pocket size maps was published by Jansson, from plates engraved by Peiter Van Den Keere and Abraham Goos. In contrast to the Mercator-Hondius series started in 1607, these maps follow Speed. They are slightly larger in size and show more detail. There is Latin text on the reverse and the title of the map in the language of the text appears outside the top boarder of the map.(Ref: R. W.
