HASSIA | Landgraviatus, Joan Blaeu (1662) The first maps of Hessen appeared in Sebastian Münsters Cosmographia (1550) and Abraham Ortelius (1527-1598) Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (1575). These maps were based on the work by J. Dryander. 17th-century maps were mainly based on the topographical survey of Hessen carried out between 1607-1617 by Wilhelm Dilich (1571-1655) ordered by the landgrave Moritz van Hessen. The survey resulted in 27 maps. This version of the map was probable published by Joan Blaeu (1598-1673).
