Johannes Janssonius, better known as Jan Jansson, was born in Arnhem, where his father was a bookseller and publisher (Jan Janszoon the Elder). In 1612 he married the daughter of cartographer and publisher Jodocus Hondius, then moved to Amsterdam as a book publisher. In 1616, he published his first maps of France and Italy and from then on produced a very large number of maps, quite comparable to those of the Blaeu family, because very close in quantity and quality. From around 1630 to 1638, he associated with his brother-in-law, Henricus Hondius, and published new editions of the Mercator / Hondius atlases with which he was associated. Upon Henricus' death, he took over the business, further expanding the Atlas until he finally published an 11-volume Atlas Major on a scale similar to that of Blaeu's Atlas Major. In general, Jansson's cards look a lot like Blaeu's and, in fact, were often copied from it, but they tend to be more flamboyant and, according to some, more decorative. After Jansson's death his heirs published a number of maps in an Atlas Contractus in 1666 and still later many plates of his British maps were acquired by Pieter Schenk and Gerard Valck, who published them again in 1683 as of separate cards.
