Petrus Kaerius & the Germania Inferior

Van Den Keere’s atlas of the Low Countries (Germania Inferior) is one of the landmark regional atlases of the early 17th Century, with the maps engraved by himself. The atlas contains the famous Leo Belgicus map. Maps are always embellished with superb cartouches.

He would go on to do significant work for John Speed and a number of other map makers in the first part of the 17th century.
