fl. 1661-81 (JAN JANSSON'S HEIRS)
Van Waesbergen, established as a bookseller in Amsterdam, acquired by inheritance from his father-in-law Jan Jansson many of Jansson's plates including those of the Atlas Minor, the Civitates Orbis Terrarum and the Atlas of the Antique World. These works were republished by him, or after his death in 1681 by his son, also named Johannes. For a time he was associated with Moses Pitt in the abortive attempt in 1680-81 to publish an English version of the major atlases by Blaeu and Jansson.

The old economic map
in the Region of Mälaren.
In connection with the enclose process (“laga skifte”) it was recommended
that a summary of the maps to generalized representation of whole parishes be
produced. This work was much furthered by the order that the parish maps could
serve as a sort of qualification works for surveyors. Summaries of the
enclosure maps were also put together as framework (“stomkartor”) both for
the topographic maps and for the economic maps that were drawn for "härad"
districts that consists of a group of parishes. The economic "härad"
maps were printed in the scale of 1:50 000 beginning with the maps of the
"härad" of Uppsala county (“län”) 1860. The economic maps of
Uppsala, Stockholm, Södermanland and Västmanland counties are here analyzed
as to their reliability as sources for geographical studies by means of a
comparison between the printed maps, the field maps (e.g. the revised "stomkartor")
and the underlying enclosure maps. The descriptions (“beskrivningar”)
belonging to the economic maps have been compared with official statistics
from the same years, if possible. As a result it can be said that the old
economic maps are well done and the field checking was very carefully
performed. Consequently the maps in question give a very fine synchronous view
of the regions. They should be more used by geographers, historians and
statisticians. Unfortunately all Sweden does not possess such maps.
