Notes: The plates of Jansson's British maps were aquired by Peter Schenk and Gerard Valk in 1694. The new owners' imprint was substituted and a graticule of grid lines was added to mast maps. The delineation of major towns was also amended to show plan views. The maps were sold singly and in made-up atlases. By 1714 the plates seem to have been acquired by David Mortier who re-issued some of them in his Atlas Anglois. They appeared a final time in 1724 in an edition of the Atlas Anglois, now published by Joseph Smith.
