Cartographer: The Amsterdam based Blaeu clan represents the single most important family in the history of cartography. The firm was founded in 1596 by Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638). It was in this initial period, from 1596 to 1672, under the leadership of the Willem Blaeu and with this assistance of his two talented sons Cornelius (1616-1648) and Johannis (1596-1673), that the firm was most active. Their greatest cartographic achievement was the publication of the magnificent multi-volume Atlas Major. To this day, the Atlas Major represents one of the finest moments in cartography. The vast scope, stagger attention to detail, historical importance, and unparalled beauty of this great work redefined the field of cartography in ways that have endured to the modern era. The cartographic works of the Blaeu firm are the crowning glory of the Dutch Golden age. The firm shut down in 1672 when their offices were destroyed during the Great Amsterdam fire.
