Germania, by Frans Hogenberg, published by J.B. Vrients. 1612

The original plate, engraved in 1576 by F. Hogenberg, was acquired by Vrients and with some small alternations used for his editions of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum since 1603.


Frans (Franz) Hogenberg (1535-1590)

Frans Hogenberg was a Flemish and German painter, engraver, and mapmaker. He was born in Mechelen as the son of Nicolaas Hogenberg.

By the end of the 1560s Frans Hogenberg was employed upon Abraham Ortelius's Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, published in 1570; he is named as engraver of numerous maps. In 1568 he was bannend from Antwerp by the Duke of Alva and travelled to London, where he stayed a few years before emigrating to Cologne. There he immediately embarked on his two most important works, the Civitates published from 1572 and the Geschichtsblätter, which appeared in several series from 1569 until about 1587.

Thanks to such large scale projects as the Geschichtsblätter and the Civitates, Hogenberg's social circumstances improved with each passing year. He died as a wealthy man in Cologne in 1590.


Jan Baptist Vrients    1552-1612

Although Jan Baptist Vrients (Vrintius) was a map- and print-seller and an engraver, he was mainly active as a map publisher. He was enrolled in the Guild of St. Luke in Antwerpen in 1575. He published several cartographic works of great importance, i.e., Petrus Plancius's large world map of 1592. After 1600, he acquired the stock and the plates of De Jode's Speculum and Ortelius' Theatrum. He continued the editions of the Theatrum and those of the Epitome, the plates of which he had acquired from Philip Galle and Johannes Keerbergen. In 1603, Vrients published an atlas of the Netherlands compiled from the Theatrum sheets. When Vrients died in 1612, the whole stock and the copperplates were sold to the Moretus Brothers of the House Plantin, who compiled another three editions of the Theatrum.
