About Hondius (for Wikipedia)

Wilhelm Hondius (born 1597, died 1652) - engraver and cartographer, engaged in engraving and cartography. He obtained his artistic education in the studio of his father Henryk the Elder, soon becoming the privileged engraver of the Dutch States. He was the court etchanter at the court of Władysław IV and Jan Kazimierz. In 1636 he moved to Gdańsk.

His work developed in two directions: engraving and cartography. In the field of engraving, he cooperated with Antoon van Dyck in creating portraits of Dutch court members. After moving to Poland (after 1636), he made portraits of: Władysław IV, Ludwika Maria, Jan Kazimierz and numerous dignitaries and representatives of the Gdańsk patriciate. In the field of cartography, the greatest fame brought him the plan of relief Smoleńska from 1633 - 1634, made on the order of Władysław IV according to the drawing by Jan Pleitner. Other works of this type, for example, were made by Wieliczka plan and the view of the salt mine according to Marcin German. The unfinished work was a detailed atlas of Poland "Theatrum Poloniae" according to Beauplan. (...)

He was also a co-executor of astronomical tables placed in the dissertation of Jan Heweliusz entitled "Selenographia sive lunae descriptia" published in 1647.
