Mercator, Gerard, and Jodocus Hondius
ATLAS OR A GEOGRAPHICKE DESCRIPTION OF THE REGIONS, COUNTRIES AND KINGDOMES OF THE WORLD... TRANSLATED BY HENRY HEXHAM. AMSTERDAM: "HENRY HONDIUS AND JOHN JOHNSON", 1636 [BUT 1638]
2 volumes, folio (480 x 350mm.), half-title in volume one, engraved titles with letterpress overslips, dedication leaf to Charles I, double-page engraved portrait of Mercator and Hondius, 196 double-page engraved maps, later panelled calf in period style, world map slightly shorter, some very occasional light browning in volume 2

The first English text edition of the Mercator atlas, the only folio atlas produced by the great publishing houses of Janssonius and Blaeu with English text. The English edition of the Mercator-Hondius Atlas contained  twenty new maps and numerous other maps have been corrected and improved, and in some cases new vignettes have been added.

The present example conforms to Koeman Me 41B, with the title in the first volume printed on an overslip, which is pasted over the French title, although not the French imprint.
