Jan Jansson (1588-1664) was born in Arnhem and was established as a book publisher in Amsterdam by 1616 when we published his first maps. His maps are similar in style to those of his contemporary Blaeu. His first full of edition of British county maps was in 1646, with further editions in the following years.
