"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 map's coverage was originally devised by Theunis Jacobsz in c.1650; it is, however, derived from later derivatives. Goos appears to have drawn upon Hendrick Doncker of 1659 for his depiction of the North American coastline, but Joannes van Loon for the South American portion. Shortly after Goos altered the chart extensively, something that he virtually never did. These alterations drew upon the van Loon chart of 1661 with the exception of the St. Lawrence River. The coastlines of present day New jersey and Long Island are much improved. The Grand Banks and Newfoundland are also reconfigured. All of the Atlantic Islands are moved further east, and the brazilian coastline is extended eastwards." (Burden)
