On the bottom left is the title cartouche stating the manufacturer Johannes van Keulen The term "en Boeckverkooper Graedbooghmaker Tegenover de Nieubrugh, Gekroonde in de Lootsman." Was used by Van Keulen and his company from 1684 The top left section of the map shows a sub map of the city Hamburg. This contains its own title cartouche and with fortification lines evident on the borders of the city. The river entrances to the city is shown and of note the compass rose is pointed in a different orientation that the other two on the map. Johannes van Keulen was one of the most important chart makers of his time. He had brought the business and premises of chart maker Hendrik Doncker. From 1743 his publishing house even had a monopoly on the supply of the East India Company (VOC) with charts. The “Zee- Atlas" was published in 1680, in the years 1681 to 1684 it was followed in five parts, the "Zee-Fakkel", both works have been reprinted several times and expanded. These two Atlases are considered to be among some of the finest Dutch charts.
