  <mods:abstract>Women in Cartography: The widow of Jodocus Hondius, Sr. took over his business for a short period after his death in 1612, before transferring the responsibility to their sons Jodocus Jr. and Henricus. She is credited with creating this portrait honoring her husband, one year after his death, and Flemish cartographer Gerard Mercator, both prominent cartographers from the 16th and 17th centuries. Mercator is still recognized today for his rectangular world map projection that is used in many geography classrooms.</mods:abstract>
  <mods:note>Double portrait of Mercator and Hondius, each shown measuring a globe at a table with books and cartographic instruments, with a map of Europe behind them. Engraved by Coletta Hondius.</mods:note>
