Following the death of the Jodocus Hondius I in 1612, the Mercator-Hondius atlas was published by Henricus Hondius.

Girolamo Mocetto, Judith with the Head of Holofernes (1500/05), engraving after Andrea Mantegna, second state.
In the first state the background is plain; the landscape of state II was probably added some years later.
The west side of Tierra del Fuego and regions above are shown as small islands, rather than the ambiguous forms used in the later Hondius map.
The notes in the center of the map are contained in small circles in the earlier edition and a massive Patagonian is shown next to a smaller European man at the bottom center, alon with two see lions.
The present example of the map is a previously unrecorded proof state by Jodocus Hondius II, which pre-dates the exceedingly rare first state of the map, which was later sold to Blaeu, who added his name to the plate and removed the name of Jodocus Hondius (see link below): As can be seen in comparing the the two maps, the proof state does not include the text annotation to the left of the Patagonian man below the compass rose, lacks the rings aroung the two sets of text annotations below and to the left of the compass rose, lacks the mountains above and to the right of the compass rose and lacks the mountains to the right of the Notitia cartouche.
