Catholic geographer and cartographer, born Antwerp, Holland, April 14, 1527; died there 1598. In 1564 he published an eight-leaved map of the world, which was followed in 1570 by the first great modern atlas, his Theatrum orbis terrarum, containing an index of ancient and modern place names. He also compiled a valuable list of cartographers and their works, and in 1587 published a still useful dictionary of old geography.
