One of the maps is the famous LEO BELGICUS, (2nd state) of the lion rampant facing right by Hendrik van Langren (1573-1609) which Kaerius already inserted in the 1617 edition. On the verso of the map the author refers to Michael Aitzinger as the first one to print this map.

Note:Second edition, first published in 1617. For this second edition the text was entirely reset; "Flandriae pars orientalior" (pl. 10) was replaced by the "Caerte van t'Vrije" by C.J. Visscher while the map "Typus Frisiae orientalis", now with text on the verso, is bound at the end
Ref. Koeman Kee-2 ; Van der Heijden 2006, 4.2 ; Eenheid op papier, p. 31 (titelpagina van de 1617-editie)
"Interessant is dat een Vlaamse cartograaf in Amsterdam, die in 1617 de mooiste atlas van de Nederlanden samenstelde die ooit gemaakt is, het belang van de boekdrukkunst en van het kompas zo goed besefte dat hij beide op zijn titelpagina afbeeldde."
