Laurenberg's Atlas of Ancient Greece

Laurenberg, a skilled cartographer, was also a noted philologist, mathematician, classicist, and poet. He made maps for the atlases issued by the Amsterdam-based Hondius and Blaeu firms. The present work on ancient Greece assigns a map for each region described. The present atlas of ancient Greece was edited and published posthumously by Samuel Pufendorf, just a short time after Laurenberg's death.
