‘In 1678 Johann Christoph Beer translated into German Pierre Duval’s highly successful little atlas entitled ‘Le Monde Terreste, ou la Geographie Universelle’, first published in Paris, 1660. An English edition of the atlas was also produced but only this Nuremberg issue bore maps. It was published by Johann Hoffman who employed the local engraver Sigismund Hipschmann to render the plates. The atlas was republished in the years 1679, 1681, 1690 and 1694.’ Burden ‘North America’ no. 499.
