World in north polar azimuthal projection. 1792

California is shown as a large island. The figure of Atlas at the page bottom is holding the world.

Louis Renard published this title page map already in 1715 in his Atlas de la navigation.


Jan Barend Elwe (florished 1785-1809)

The Amsterdam bookseller and publisher, J.B. Elwe, was probably of foreign origin. His activities in the book trade date back to 1785, a date found on an atlas.

J.B. Elwe's contribution to atlas and map production was slight. All he did was print some maps from old plates after deleting their name and adding his address.
