Bottom border: Cadiz - Malaga - Conil - Lisbona - Xeres - Velis Malaga - Ecila.
Left and right: Costumed figures.

Pieter Verbiest (Petrus Verbist) and Isaak Verbiest (Isack Verbist)

Pieter Verbiest (Antwerpen, 1607-1674) was an Antwerp cartographer and engraver. Little is known about his life.
One of his most important works is the Novus Tabularum Geographicorum Belgicae (Antwerp, 1636), a pocket atlas of which two more editions were published later (1644 and 1652). Isaak Verbiest, probably a brother of Pieter, drew and engraved certain maps. Their collaboration also led to the production of two rare world maps.

Pieter Verbiest also published folio maps as separate publications. Koeman describes three editions of a Verbiest atlas of the Netherlands, published between 1636 and 1652. Only one copy of each of these atlases is known.
Verbiest-maps, some with beautiful decorative borders with city views, costumed figures and coats of arms, were sometimes bound in composite atlases. Occasionally, copies of these scarce maps come onto the market.
