Matthias Quad was born and learnt engraving in the Netherlands. An engraver in wood and stone, Quad collaborated with the Cologine publisher Johann Bussemacher to publish a quarto atlas of Europe in 1592. This was expanded into a Geographisches Handtbuch (1599), with more text than maps, and then into a proper atlas, Fasciculus Geographicus (1608).
