Biography:

Petrus Bertius (1565 –1629) was a Flemish theologian, historian, geographer and cartographer. Bertius published much in mathematics, and historical and theological works, but he is now best known as a cartographer with his edition of the Geographia of Ptolemy (based on Mercator’s edition from 1578), and for his atlas.

In 1618 Bertius was given an appointment as a cosmographer to the court of Louis XIII. His career in cartography had started in 1598, with the publication of a Latin edition of a miniature atlas Caert Thresoor by Barent Langenes, which he translated as Tabulae contractae (1600). His Theatrum geographiae veteris had commended him to King Louis.
