North Atlantic Ocean, by Joannes van Loon.

Joannes Van Loon (? – 1686)

Not much biographical data is known about Johannes Van Loon. He was a well-known mathematical practitioner who worked during a long period for various Amsterdam booksellers. He was also an engraver of sea charts, as he signed the charts made for the well-known sea-atlas: Klaer-Lichtende Noort-star, published by him and his brother Gilles since 1661. This sea-atlas was the first project undertaken at his own risk. Before 1661, he had contributed in the composition of the pilot books published by Johannes Janssonius.
Janssonius employed him further for the cutting of the plates for the celestial atlas: Harmonia Macrocosmica, first published in 1660.
In 1666 the plates for the sea-atlas were sold to Joh. Janssonius van Waesbergen who sold the atlas in partnership with Van Loon, after supplementing the atlas charts with twelve new charts, all signed by Van Loon and Van Waesbergen.
Later he worked on the Zee-Fakkel by Johannes Van Keulen (1681) and on the Brandende Veen by Jacobus Robijn (1685).
