Abstract/Description
Successful Dutch cartographer Frederik de Wit (sometimes spelled Frederick De Witt) published dozens of maps and atlases throughout his career. Upon moving to Amsterdam at the height of the Dutch Golden Age, de Wit created several maps of Holland. He released his first atlas c. 1662, but continued to revise and republish over several decades, eventually titling it Atlas Major during the 1690s. After his death in 1706, de Wit's plates were sold to other publishers, who continued his cartographic legacy.
