Cornelis de Jode
|Cornelis de Jode|
|Died||17 Oct 1600
When his father died in 1591, Cornelis de Jode took over the work on his father's uncompleted altas, which he eventually published in 1593 as Speculum Orbis Terrae . Despite that contemporary scholars consider many of de Jode's maps to be superior both in detail and style to those of the competing atlas of the time Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Ortelius, de Jode's atlas never sold well.
