Henricus Hondius II (1597 - 1651)

Henricus was a Dutch cartographer, engraver and publisher, born in Amsterdam, the second son of the famous cartographer Jodocus Hondius I, who had started a map-making business in the city. Henricus obtained the original plates of the Mercator 1569 world map, and published a 1606 version of it. After his father death in 1612 Henricus ran the business with his brother-in-law. In 1621 he opened his own company in his hometown. The first time his name was mentioned in an atlas was in 1623 when he published the fifth edition of the Mercator-Hondius atlas. After 1628 Henricus partnered with the cartographer Jan Janssonius and together they continued the business. He died in Amsterdam.
