"Pieter Goos' marine atlases were held to be among the finest printed at the time and were often added tot the nine or twelve volumes of Blaeu's Atlas Maior." (Shirley)
"This chart of the West Indies and south-east of North America is one of the derivates of the Hessel Gerritz, c.1631. It combines various features from some of the later examples. In some ways it follows more than most the original Gerritz, as it is the first to include the inset of the north-west coast of Cuba. However, it emulates the van Loon, 1661, in the Gulf of Mexico, and the Doncker, 1659, in its inclination of the south-east coastline. Here, though, Goos has dramatically improved the scale and depiction of the Outer Banks." (Burden)
