Description

A map embracing Hungary, north of Serbia and Croatia was published in an atlas ‘Fasciculus Geographicus’ by Matthias Quad (1557 – 1613). Quad was born in the Dutch city of Deventer, where Jacob Roelofs spent his youth. In the 1580 Quad moved to Cologne. The city accepted many political and religious refugees, like Roelofs van Deventer himself some years before. At the same time Frans Hogenberg was active in Cologne too. At the end of the 16th century this city was one of the publishing centres of Europe. Most of the Quad’s small format atlases were printed in this time in Cologne. In the time of twelve years he produced 18 geographical-historical books. In 1604, he had to leave Cologne because of his controversial religious believes. After moving around Germany for nine years he died in Eppingen (Baden-Wurttemberg) in 1613.
