Family of engravers, cartographers and publishers in Amsterdam. Jodocus Hondius (1563 - 1612) aquired the plates for the Mercator atlas 1604, which he reissued - with texts by his brother-in-law Petrus Montanus - in a new enlarged edition (published by H. Hondius till 1641). His sons Jodocus Hondius jun. (1594 - 1629) and Henricus Hondius (1597 - 1651) took over the firm, continued by Henricus Hondius together with his brother-in-law J. Janssonius from 1630 on.
