Nice pair of maps from two different editions of the Atlas Minor, a reduced version of Mercator's popular atlas. It was published in numerous editions in all the main European languages. There are subtle differences between the maps, making a great comparison. The first map (7.3 x 5.5") is from a Latin edition published by Jodocus Hondius and Jan Jansson the Elder in 1610. The second map (7.7 x 5.6") is from a German edition published by Jan Jansson the younger in 1631.
