Holland by Cornelis de Jode 1593

Gerard and Cornelis de Jode

Gerard de Jode (Judaeus) (1508(?)-1591), a native of Nijmegen, began his career as a printer and engraver in Antwerp about 1550. He lived on the Vatelijne Veste, or on "de Catte", near the Bourse. He was in regular contact with Christoffel Plantin, to whom he sold many prints and maps. De Jode's business, which must have been a major one among the many booksellers and printers in Antwerp, was represented at the Frankfurt fair, where de Jode bought maps which he later copied or re-sold. Most of the maps sold by De Jode have prototypes of Italian or German origin. Apart of his many separately published maps, Gerard de Jode is known for his atlas, Speculum Orbis Terrarum, published in 1578. Part of the engraving was done by himself, part by brothers Jan and Lucas van Doetecum.
Gerard de Jode and Abraham Ortelius, both of whom made their living partly as map sellers, were competitors and apparently not always on good terms.
After the death of Gerard de Jode in 1591, the business was carried on by his widow Pascale van Gelder, and by his son Cornelis (1568-1600). The latter, who was more a publisher than an engraver, reissued the Speculum in 1593, adding new maps and revising others.
Despite all its deficiencies, the Speculum must have had a good reputation. It is mentioned alongside with Mercator's Atlas and Ortelius's Theatrum in Petrus Montanus's preface to the Germania Inferior of Pieter van den Keere.
