Blaeu's Atlas Maior was the greatest atlas ever published, a landmark in the history of cartography.

Mighty Mack announces updates to one of its most popular apps, which displays Johannes Blaeu’s tremendous contribution to the world through his accomplishments in cartography.

This splendid, sweeping atlas represents the 11- volume first edition of Johannes Blaeu's celebrated cartographic masterpiece, the Atlas Maior, published in Amsterdam in 1662. Blaeu's Atlas Maior was the greatest atlas ever published, a landmark in the history of cartography. With different volumes devoted to specific parts of the world, Blaeu lavished meticulous attention and flawless detail on every corner of the globe. No other atlas ever published was as costly, or had such an exalted place in the society in which it was produced.

The Atlas Maior was such a symbol of status that it became the traditional state gift presented by the Dutch government, its prestige derived mainly from the remarkable standards of production involved. For quality of engraving, beauty of ornament, coloring, typography and paper, the atlas has never been surpassed, and the maps were on the forefront of geographical knowledge and discovery. 

The full version of Mighty Mack’s The Blaeu Atlas 1662 App features over 100 Maps of the Blaeu Atlas from 1662.
