Johannes Janssonius (1588 - 1664) was a famed cartographer and print publisher. More commonly known as Jan Jansson, he was born in Arnhem and in 1612 married the daughter of the cartographer and publisher Jodocus Hondius.
In 1616 he published his first maps of France and Italy and from then onwards, produced a very large number of maps which went some way to rival those of the Blaeu family, who held a virtual monopoly over the industry.
From about 1630 to 1638 he was in partnership with his brother-in-law, Henricus Hondius, issuing further editions of the Mercator-Hondius atlases to which his name was added. Janssonius's county maps originally appeared in his Appendix Atlantis to the Mercator-Hondius atlas, first published in German in 1636.
