In 1613 Adriaen Veen, in cooperation with engraver and publisher Jodocus Hondius junior, published a chart of Scandinavia which came on the market as a separate sheet. The map was dedicated to the Swedish king, Gustav II Adolf. Veen's map was compiled without any Swedish influence and solely based on Dutch sources. The map was for a long time the best to be had on the Dutch market. Willem Blaeu imitated Adriaen Veen both in drawing and in toponyms.
The map was also included in the rare Appendices of Jodocus Hondius (1629) and Joannes Janssonius (1630).
