In the 1690s he began to use a new title page Atlas Maior but continued to use his old title page.? His atlas of the Low Countries first published in 1667,?was named Nieuw Kaertboeck van de XVII Nederlandse Provinciën and contained 14 to 25 maps.?De Wit quickly expanded upon his first small folio atlas which contained mostly maps printed from plates that he had acquired, to an atlas with 27 maps engraved by or for him. By 1671 he was publishing a large folio atlas with as many as 100 maps. Smaller atlases of 17 or 27 or 51 maps could still be purchased and by the mid-1670s an atlas of as many as 151 maps and charts could be purchased from his shop.?? In ca.1675 De Wit released a new nautical atlas. The charts in this atlas replaced the earlier charts from 1664 that are known today in only four bound examples and a few loose copies.?? De Wit?s new charts were sold in a chart book and as part of his atlases. De Wit published no fewer than 158 land maps and 43 charts on separate folio sheets.?In 1695 De Wit began to publish a town atlas of the Netherlands after he acquired a large number of city plans at the auction of the famous Blaeu publishing firm?s printing plates.Dating De Wit's atlases is considered difficult because usually no dates were recorded on the maps and their dates of publication extended over many years.
