Dr. Sam Segal believes this work by Justus Danckerts is the first edition and predates the edition by Vauquer. However both are rare and no copy has appeared at auction. J. Danckerts was a member of the famous Danckerts family of Amsterdam, one of the best known print and map sellers in 17th century Amsterdam. 'The grandfather, father, and sons were all highly skilled and excellent artistic draftsman and engravers' (Koeman II, p. 88).
