In 1734 Amsterdam publisher Henri Du Sauzet issued his two-volume “Atlas Portatif Composé de CCLXXXV Cartes..,"
based on a 100-year-old Mercator atlas. Mercator's "Atlas Minor," with maps mostly engraved by Jodocus Hondius, was
first published in 1607 by Hondius, after Mercator's death in 1594. The 1628 second edition, had maps engraved by
Pieter van den Keere and Abraham Goos. Editions of this atlas were printed until the middle of the 17th century. The
third and final edition was published in 1630. It was this atlas, known as "Gerardi Mercatoris," published by Johannes
Cloppenburg, that Henri Du Sauzet, Amsterdam publisher, issued in 1734 (with a second edition in 1738) with blank
versos (Cloppenburg's maps had text on the reverse), re-sized maps and added page numbers in the upper right corners.
See the "Prussia" map on the "Lithuania Minor" page, and the "Russia in Europe" on that page from the same atlas.
