Flanders (Vlaanderen) by Ottens R. & J. 1730-45

The Ottens Family

Joachim Ottens (1663-1719) was a copper engraver and the founder of the print— and mapsellers’ firm in Amsterdam. In 1710, he became a member of the art— and printsellers guild. After he died in 1719, his widow and sons continued the business under the name “In de Wereldcaert” (In the world map). Overall, Ottens’s financial position was rather weak, and his stock was not very large.
In a notary contract dated 20 October 1726, the partnership between the two brothers, Reinier and Josua, was stipulated. Despite having separate shops, the brothers’ partnership continued until Renier died in 1750.
After Joshua died in 1765, his widow continued the firm with her son, Renier II, until c. 1780.
The firm flourished mainly between 1719 and c. 1750. In that period, they advertised the publication of new maps at various times.
Ottens’s greatest fame comes from the voluminous atlases assembled to order. Several of these so-called ‘Atlas factice’, splendid copies with gorgeous illumination, have survived. These collector’s copies are known to exist in 2, 6, 8, 11, and even 15 volumes. Ottens also published atlases in one volume, with a varying number of maps, pocket atlases, collections of military plans, and Renard’s Atlas de la Navigation.
