F.De Wit / J.Covens & C.Mortier - Amsterdam - - 49 x 57 - Original Colour - Johannes Covens and Cornelis Mortier were responsible for one of the most prolific map-making and publishing endeavours during the second and third quarters of the eighteenth century. They worked from premises in Amsterdam where they were well situated to acquire the plates and rights to many earlier atlases. Johannes was the brother-in-law of Cornelis and the son of Pieter Mortier, a mapmaker and publisher in his own right. The output of Covens and Mortier was vast and the buisness was continued until as late as 1866 by various relatives. Covens and Mortier was vast and the buisness was continued until as late as 1866 by various relatives. Covens and Mortier were responsible for the re-issue of atlases, pocket atlases, wall maps and town plans by such mapmakers as Sanson, Jaillot, Visscher, Van Der Aa, De L'Isle and De Wit amongst others. This map is Covens and Mortier's re-issue of De Wit's map that first appeared c.1680 - the map is altered from the original issue with the addition of a more elaborate title cartouche at upper right and the inclusion of Covens and Mortier's name in the imprint. This example has most attractive original colour and minor restoration to small areas of paper weakness.
